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]

Trading[edit]

Expert-level Cartographer villagers will always sell 1 or 2 blank banners of a random color for 3 emeralds. Expert-level Shepherd villagers have a 27 chance of offering the same trade.‌[Java Edition only]

Expert-level Cartographer and shepherd villagers sell one of 16 blank banners for 3 emeralds as part of their trades.‌[Bedrock Edition only]

Creative menu[edit]

Illager banner can be obtained in creative inventory.‌[Bedrock Edition only]

Drops[edit]

Illagers that spawn carrying an ominous banner‌[JE only] or illager banner‌[BE only] will always drop it upon death.

Usage[edit]

Overlapping block on a banner.
Overlapping on a wall mounted banner.

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 in any direction, or on a wall. Banners have no collision mask as they are completely non-solid, so items and mobs can move through them.

Other blocks (including other banners) can be placed on any edge of a banner's hitbox, which, despite appearing as two blocks tall, only fills the bottom block on one placed on the ground. This makes it possible to overlap another solid block on the top half of a banner.

When a banner is placed on a vertical block, its position is set by the top block, and it is possible to place it so it appears half buried.

Banners can also be placed in item frames, where they simply appear as their item model.

Water and lava will flow around banners. In Bedrock and Legacy Console editions, banners can be waterlogged.

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.

If a banner is renamed on an anvil, it will retain its name when a pattern is added, but not when a pattern is removed.

Helmet[edit]

Steve wearing White Banner.pngAlex wearing White Banner.png

While a banner cannot be equipped in the head slot in Survival mode, equipping it using commands will cause it to appear on top of the player. This is how pillager captains wear banners.

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.

Crafting ingredient[edit]

Information icon.svg
This feature is exclusive to Java Edition.

Shields can have patterns applied to them using banners. The shield pattern has a smaller resolution than the banner pattern, causing them to look different or offset.

Name Ingredients Crafting recipe Description
Shield Shield +
Matching Banner


Applies the banner pattern to the shield. The banner is consumed.
The shield must have no preexisting patterns.
Does not change existing durability or enchantments on the shield.

Fuel[edit]

Banners can be used as a fuel in furnaces, smelting 1.5 items per banner.

Renaming[edit]

A banner can be given a custom name which remains as the banner is placed and retrieved.‌[Java Edition only] The player can use an anvil to rename the banner item, or may change the CustomName tag using the /data command on the banner block.

Map Marker[edit]

Right-clicking on a banner with a map selected will place a marker of the banner's position on that map ‌[Java Edition only], and right-clicking again will remove it. The marker will have the same color as the banner's base, and will not have any decorations. The marker will be removed if the banner is destroyed unless the map is locked using the cartography table. If the banner is renamed, the name will show below the marker.‌[Java Edition only]

Patterns[edit]

A banner may have up to six patterns, which are overlaid with the last-crafted on top. A banner can have up to 16 patterns with the use of commands.

Any color banner can be used, the color will just be overlayed with the pattern. In Java Edition a loom is used to make patterns. However, in Bedrock Edition, the patterns can be made in loom or in crafting table.

Issues[edit]

Issues relating to "Banner" are maintained on the bug tracker. Report issues there.

Trivia[edit]

  • When Banners are placed in the Overworld, they gently sway, as if affected by the wind.
  • With 16 blank banners, 38 patterns of 16 colors each (608 uniquely-colored patterns), and 0 to 6 patterns per banner, the number of uniquely crafted banners is 16 × (6080 + 6081 + 6082 + 6083 + 6084 + 6085 + 6086) ≈ 809 quadrillion (809,573,616,779,945,488). The number of visually distinct banners is smaller, because one or more patterns may completely cover other patterns, or the entire banner, or be duplicated due to the symmetric set of patterns (e.g. field or (yellow) + per pale azure (blue) = field azure + per pale or inverted).
  • If a banner has over 6 patterns, only the six bottommost patterns are displayed when hovered over in the inventory.
  • The Mojang Logo is called "Thing" ingame, which could be considered an alternate translation for mojäng. If Google Translate is used, it translates to "thingys" or "contraption".
    • In the Swedish translation of the game, this pattern is, in fact, called mojäng.
  • Banner textures are located in \assets\minecraft\textures\entity\banner.
    • There are 40 monochrome textures, each containing all 6 sides of the banner.
    • The texture of the back side is the mirrored texture of the front side.
    • Compared to the texture files, textures' colors are inverted in-game due to them acting as masks for the re-colored base texture, base.png. That means white is visible, while black is transparent.
  • There are two unused item textures for the banner. Instead, the banner displays itself as if it were a block.
  • In the Legacy Console Edition, the icon for the banner is turned the other way, but the patterns are not mirrored.
  • In Bedrock Edition, banners are considered as items. Dropping a banner on the ground will reveal that the item entity does not rotate like the item entity of a block. This is because the banner previously had an item sprite, and items never rotate when idle.
  • The Ominous Banner's‌[Java Edition only] design uses 8 patterns. Because of this, it cannot be crafted.
    • Because the Illager Banner is a separate type of banner‌[Bedrock Edition only], the player cannot add patterns to it or even put it in the banner slot of a Loom.
  • Banners that have the purple NBT+ line in the bottom (obtained by holding Ctrl and middle-clicking the banner, which will also copy the NBT tag of anything that the player points their crosshair to) actually has no difference with the base banner obtained by only middle click.
