A banner will also break and drop itself as an item if the block the banner is attached to is moved, removed, or destroyed.

Crafting[edit]

Banners can be crafted from wool and a stick.

Bleach



























Bleach can be used to remove the color of a banner, resulting in a white banner. This includes removing patterns from a white banner.[Bedrock and Education editions only]

Natural generation[edit]

Banners generate on the outside of end cities. It is a magenta banner with a black chevron and black inverted chevron.

Banners also generate in woodland mansions.

Usage[edit]

Getting started[edit]

There are 16 colored blank banners, and numerous patterns each available in each of the 16 colors. A banner can feature up to 6 different patterns. The top layer of a banner (or the last pattern added) can be washed off by using it on a cauldron containing water.

Banners, much like signs, can be placed both on the ground, facing different directions, and on walls. Banners have no collision mask (they are completely non-solid), so items and mobs can move through banners. Other blocks (including other banners) can be placed on any edge of a banner's hitbox; which, despite appearing as two blocks tall, it only fills the bottom block (or the top block for banners on walls). Banners can also be placed in item frames, where they simply appear as their item model.

Water and lava will flow around banners. Lava can create fire in air blocks next to banners as if the banners were flammable, but the banners will not burn up (and can't be burned by other methods, either). Banners also cannot be moved by pistons.

Copying[edit]

Banners can be copied with a blank banner to make multiple identical banners.

Ingredients Crafting recipe Description
Matching Banner

























































Copies pattern; both banners must have the same base color, and the one that will have patterns printed onto it must have no preexisting patterns.

Patterns[edit]

A banner may have up to six patterns, which are overlaid with the last-crafted on top.

Any color banner can be used, the color will just be overlayed with the pattern.
