Worship Flags and Banners

Worship flags and worship banners are a powerful means of exuberant worship and spiritual declaration. Biblically, flags and banners in worship carry spiritual significance, and have been used through the ages of communication and declaration.

Lifting worship banners and flags during times of high praise is just like declaring words of victory into the spiritual world. Specific banners were raised to gather the tribes of Israel to war – they provided direction and identification for the people of God. So too today, rightly understood and used, banners can strike terror into the heart of the enemy.

Solomon asked the question in Song of Solomon 6:10:

“Who is she that looketh forth as the morning, Fair as the moon, Clear as the sun, Terrible as an army with banners?”

Who is she? She is the Church of the Living God.

The Significance and Symbolism of Worship Banners

Banners are mentioned many times throughout Scripture and symbolise many things.
For example:

Love

Song of Solomon 2:4
He brought me to His banqueting house and His banner over me is love.

When we are walking with God His banner is always over us – a shelter, a safe place, covered by God as in Psalm 60:4,

“You have set up a banner for those who fear you
to rally to it out of bowshot.”

Beauty

At a ladies conference I went to, banners were used to signify the latter rain, and just being a witness for Christ. Witnessing all the banners being lifted in the name of Jesus planted something in my spirit.

Song of Solomon 6:4b + 10
Awesome as an army of banners (v 10 the same)

This is what the beloved is saying about his love. The beauty of a whole array of banners in one place is quite awesome and breathtaking.

A Rallying point

The children of Israel all had family banners with a painting on, to go to at times of
travel, or battle as they set out in order. Banners sometimes are painted with symbols
to give more significance to them. Numbers Chapter 2.

Declaration/ Warfare/Victory

We can stand with a banner lifted high to declare God’s victory – God is in charge!
At certain times, God has lead me to lift up a banner, when petitioning over people,
circumstances, or events. ie: during a meeting one night, I felt the Lord wanted me to
lift up the red (blood), and green (healing) banners, while we were praying for a ladies
husband who was not well.

We expect the victory every time a banner is lifted high in Jesus name.

Psalm 20:5, “May we shout for joy over your victory and lift up our banners in the
name of our God. May the Lord grant all your requests.”

Exodus 17:8-15
The story of Moses holding up his staff while the battle was going on with Joshua
against the Amalekites.

The significance of colors of Worship flags and and banners

Even the colors of praise banners and worship banners have significance. Although these may differ slightly the following outline gives and idea of what one might be thinking/declaring into the spiritual realm as a banner is raised or waved in worship. These colors and their significance are those personally applied by a good frind of ours. Yours may be different. The important thing is the faith and revelation behind the raising of the worship banners when you do so:

  • Black Jesus death and for the death of all (some) of what has been in my life
  • Red Jesus Blood – forgiveness of sin, cleansing, healing
  • Blue Gods grace and mercy Eph 1:20 He is seated in heavenly places
  • Yellow Joy for depression Nehemiah 8:10 tell story of me
  • Orange Fire of the Holy Spirit
  • Gold Glory of God
  • Silver/white Holy Spirit- holiness
  • Green Healing – Rev 22:2 “the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations
  • Pale blue Rivers of living water – John 7:38b streams of living water will flow from within. He will never leave me nor forsake me
  • Pale Yellow Promises of God are True – His word never lies Isaiah says ‘The spirit which is in you and the words that I have put in your mouth will be in the mouth of you descendants and the mouth of your descendants, descendants says the Lord from this time and forever more.
  • Purple Sovereignty of God, reigns over the earth
  • Cerise A husband – Jesus Isaiah 54:5 For your Maker is your husband – the Lord Almighty is His name – the Holy one of Israel is your Redeemer; He is called the God of all the earth.
    2 Corinthians 11:2 1 am jealous for you with a godly jealousy. I promised you to one husband, to Christ, so that I might present you as a pure virgin to Him

    Hi!
    I was browsing on Pinterest and came across this picture and was wondering if your group made them or if they were bought from somewhere. I absolutely love them! We do praise and worship dance to any Christian music. We love praising God with new items. Jesus stated that we are to use the things that were made to praise him. The banner I saw was the rainbow colored with the bended pole and the girl in red and black. If you could let me know, I would greatly appreciate it! Thank you so much and God bless!

    • Praise Dance says

      Hello Felicia,

      The lady with the Rainbow banner is me at an event we ministered at. A friend of our creates the banners using fishing poles, and then attaching the banner to the pole. He is very gifted. I will send his details to you.
