Since update 1.8 a new decorative element in Minecraft: banners.
This article has a slightly different purpose, you’ll actually find out how to create these banners in Minecraft, but you’ll also discover a great tool that allows you to make your patterns in advance and then apply them in-game.
Creating a flag and applying patterns to it is done in 2 steps.
Start with the fabrication of the banner base. White wool can be replaced with any other color.
Applying patterns with the loom
As of update 1.14, the loom must be used to apply patterns to banners. You can find the naturally generated loom in the fold, otherwise, here is the recipe to create it.
use of the loom
A right-click on a loom opens its graphical interface. It has 3 slots for:
- a flag
- a dye
- an optional banner template element
When a banner is placed, a list of patterns appears in the middle section.
5 templates (or 6 in Bedrock edition) require certain banner template elements: Flower, Crawl Face, Skull, Symbol and Globe. When you put a model element in its place, the loom displays only the model element.
When you select a pattern from the list, a preview of the banner is displayed after applying if there is a colorant. Finally, grab the banner below the preview. The original flag and colorant disappear from their respective positions, but the flag pattern is not consumed.
It is possible to put a banner on a poster, just place a poster and a banner as follows:
The banner disappears. Also notice that the sign must not already have a pattern. This will not change the shield’s durability or charm.
Now that you know how to create a banner, it’s time to learn how to create layouts that look great!
All the photos you will find in this article were taken on the internet site needcoolshoes.com/banner, I strongly recommend that it allow you to practice creating banners by seeing the final result and even showing the crafts step by step.
Apply a basic pattern to the online banner creator.
whole time: 2 minutes

To apply a color pattern, you must click on the pattern (3) and then select the color (4).
Each new pattern is added to the “Layers” column.
This tool is very useful if you want to do some tests to see beforehand how your banners will look without wasting resources. Now it’s up to you to create stylish banners!
