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

The flag of Switzerland (German: Schweizerfahne; French: drapeau de la Suisse; Italian: bandiera svizzera; Romansh: bandiera de la Svizra) displays a white cross in the centre of a square red field. The white cross is known as the Swiss cross.

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 Red Banners
  • 2x White Dye
  • 4x Red Dye
  • 1x Shield (Java Edition only)

How to make it:

  • Make a loom. Put two strings and two planks together in the crafting table.
  • Make red banners. Put red white  wool above a centered stick in the crafting table to make a white banner.
  • Bring the banners over to the loom.
  • Add white dye and pick the Cross design. Do it twice to get a sharp line.
  • Add red dye. Pick the Chief design.
  • Add red dye. Pick the Base design.
  • Add red dye. Pick the Bordure design. Do it twice.

That’s the finished Swiss flag as a banner all done! So now we want to put the Swiss banner on our shield, but first we want a couple more of these banners so we can decorate the village with them.

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