How to make the flag of Isle of Man as a banner in Minecraft

The flag of the Isle of Man or flag of Mann (Manx: brattagh Vannin) is a triskelion, composed of three armoured legs with golden spurs, upon a red background. It has been the official flag of Mann since 1 December 1932 and is based on the Manx coat of arms, which dates back to the 13th century. (Source: Wikipedia)

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 1x red banner (six white wool + one stick)
  • 2-5x Red Dye
  • 1x White Dye
  • 1x Skull Charge for alternative 2.
  • 1x Shield (for Java edition only)

How to make it:

  • Make a loom. Put two strings and two planks together in the crafting table.
  • Make red banners using 1 stick and six red wool in the crafting table.
  • Bring the red banner in to the loom

Alternative 1

  • Add white dye and pick the Saltire design.
  • Add red dye and pick the Chief design.
  • Add red dye and pick the Base design.
  • Add red dye and pick the Inverted Chevron design.
  • Add red dye and pick the Chevron design.
  • Add red dye and pick the field masoned design.

Alternative 2

  • Add white dye and Skull Charge banner pattern
  • Add red dye and pick the Per Fess design.
  • Add red dye and pick the Base Dexter Canton design.

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