After creating the default banner, players have the opportunity to elevate its design by reintroducing it to the crafting grid and experimenting with various customizations. These enhancements encompass adding a splash of color through dyes, incorporating intricate patterns via mob heads and flowers. The specific pattern is contingent upon the type of item that is added to the crafting grid and the strategic placement of each ingredient.
Feel free to throw the banner back into the crafting grid and give it a little more pizazz with a variety of customizations.
Jeb’s declaration is undeniable – the potential for banners is vast and varied. The colour options alone are abundant, with a plethora of vibrant dyes to choose from. However, when it comes to crafting a banner, one must rely solely on pre-made patterns as there is no tool available for designing one’s own graphic.

The process of creating banners involves a careful combination of 6 wool and a sturdy stick. A visual representation of the crafting recipe for the blank flag can be seen in the image provided below.
One stick and six wool.
The possibilities are endless with a blank banner as you have the freedom to apply numerous customizations.
Customizing the blank banner
To infuse a touch of geometric flair, one may incorporate triangular shapes by arranging three dyes in a triangular layout, in conjunction with the primary banner. The orientation of the triangle can be reversed to situate it on the opposing border of the flag.
The addition of a solitary dye to the banner will produce a square corner.
To craft sharp and angular edges on a banner, simply position three dyes around a single side of the grid.
Center the banner amidst the crafting grid and encircle it with four dyes.
Infusing the flag with a chilling vibe is as easy as pie with the Creeper face. Simply merge a banner with a Creeper head in the crafting grid and voila! Want to add a splash of hue to your Creeper? Just throw in another dye in the crafting grid simultaneously.
The banner can be adorned with a variety of mob heads, such as those of the Skeleton and Wither.
Tiled, brick pattern
The banner can be concealed in a mosaic design by introducing a brick block, which can be further customized with a splash of colored dye to the recipe.
It’s quite easy, just combine a vibrant flower with a splash of dye and your chosen banner onto the grid.
Crosses and lines
There are myriad ways to experiment with dye placement, such as arranging them in linear or diagonal patterns.
Skull and Crossbones
Begin the creation of the infamous pirate emblem by crafting the X shape (as shown in the first image). Next, combine the banner with a Wither skull and add a pop of color with your preferred dye. Voila – your pirate flag is now complete!
