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

The flag of Belgium (Dutch: Vlag van België, French: Drapeau belge, German: Flagge Belgiens) is a tricolour consisting of three equal vertical bands displaying the national colours of Belgium: black, yellow, and red.


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 Black Banners
  • Min 2x Yellow Banners
  • 2x Black Dye
  • 4x Red Dye
  • 2x Yellow Dye
  • 2x Shield (For Java Edition Only)

How to make it:

  • Make a loom. Put two strings and two planks together in the crafting table.

Alternative 1

  • Make black banners. Put black wool above a centered stick in the crafting table to make a black banner.
  • Bring the banners over to the loom.
  • Add yellow dye and pick the Pale design. Do it twice to get a sharp line.
  • Add red dye and pick Pale Sinister design. Do that twice as well.

Alternative 2

  • Make yellow banners. Put yellow wool above centered stick in the crafting table to make a yellow banner.
  • Bring the banners over to the loom.
  • Add black dye. Pick the chief design and do it twice.
  • Add red dye. Pick the Base design and do that twice as well.

That’s the finished Belgian flag as a banner all done! So now we want to put the Belgian 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 Belgian banner in the crafting table. Add more yellow or black banners next to it. Thats how you copy or duplicate the banners.
  • Now put one of these Belgian banners next to a shield in the crafting table and now you have a Bbelgian shield! This only works in Java edition however! At least for now.
