In Minecraft, one of the greatest things about it is the ability to create anything you want within the game.

The only thing that limits your ability to build is your creativity, and for members of the LGBTQIA+ community, this includes creating pride flags. 

However, creating a custom banner pattern can be difficult if you do not have an easy step-by-step to follow.

So I have created a simple process below to help you create pride banners and proudly show your gender and sexuality! 

You can see how to create all the types of Minecraft pride flags and be ready for the Minecraft pride month in June.

The Banner-Making Process

When creating a custom banner, you need to use a loom. It takes your banners and assorted dyes, allowing you to select patterns to create unique and beautiful flags.

Alongside the loom, you will also need a small sheep farm if you want to save on dye.

How To Get Coloured Dye in Minecraft

You create dyes by crafting them from plants such as flowers, crushing skeleton bones (bone meal creates white dye) or ink sacs (black dye), mixing dyes of different colors together, smelting plants (fx a sea pickle to get green dye) or trading with a Wandering trader.

Simply put the ingredient on the crafting grid to create a dye. If you want to mix two dyes together to create a third color, simply put two next to each other horizontally on the grid.

Gathering the Necessary Wool

When making all of these beautiful Pride banners, you will require a ton of wool, which can sometimes be difficult to find, especially if you live in a biome that does not often have many sheep.

So how can you get enough wool to make all of these banners? Simple, a sheep farm. All you need to begin your sheep farm is two sheep and the necessary wheat to breed them.

I recommend dying your sheep after breeding them but always keeping two white sheep around:

This will help you save on dye since you receive the wool color of the sheep when shearing them.
