A quick guide to banners

Banners were introduced back in Minecraft 1.8 and provide a way to cusomize your base or in the case of our server your dragon. Making a banner on it’s own pretty easy and a blank banner can be made using the following recipe.

This will create a blank banner (no design)

However, this is actually just the tip of the iceberg. Once you have a blank banner you can combine it with dye of varying colors to create specific patterns. Now, I could make a rather long guide on all the different patterns. However, I don’t really feel like this is the best way to play around with the different banner designs and there’s actually a pretty nifty online utility that I myself use to create banners located here:

One important thing to note is that the banner designer only includes vanilla (unmodded) banner designs. Our serve has a mod which adds some additional designs which won’t be loaded. It is recommended that you use the banner designer above to kind of get the feel for combining patterns and then play around with both the vanilla and modded banner designs.

Additional Banner Designs

Our version of the additional banner’s mod adds the following designs to Minecraft:

The item depicted in the item frame above each banner is the item needed to make that pattern

The layout on the crafting grid is the same for each item and is depicted below using dragon’s breath as an example

You can exchange ink for any color dye for different colors

Hopefully this guide proves to be a useful reference when creating different banners and remember that there is no real substitute for trying things.
