How to make the flag of Australia as a banner in Minecraft

The flag of Australia is based on the British maritime Blue Ensign – a blue field with the United Kingdom flag (Union Jack) in the canton or upper hoist quarter – augmented with a large white seven-pointed star (the Commonwealth Star) and a representation of the Southern Cross constellation, made up of five white stars – one small five-pointed star and four, larger, seven-pointed stars.

There are only a few steps to make it in to a banner in Minecraft. After that you can put it on an item frame and even on a shield.

You need:

  • A Loom (2x string and 2x planks)
  • Min 2x White Banners and 2x Blue Banners
  • 2x White dye
  • 5x Blue Dye
  • 2x Red Dye
  • A Shield or two (if playing Java Edition)

How to make it:

  • Make a loom. Put two strings and two planks together in the crafting table.
  • Make white  and blue banners. Put six white wool above a centered stick in the crafting table to make a white banner. Repeat with blue wool
  • Bring the banners over to the loom.

  • Put the finished Australian banner in the crafting table. Add more white banners next to it. Thats how you copy or duplicate the banners.
  • Now put one of these Australian banners next to a shield in the crafting table and now you have a Australian shield! This only works in Java edition however! At least for now.
