Decorating church walls with Liturgical Banners seems complicated…
Colorful questions to consider.
Let’s talk colors, liturgical colors that is.
Different colors represent certain seasons of the church year. Traditionally, the Catholic and Protestant churches follow the liturgical colors throughout their church year.
We can start with Advent, because who doesn’t love Christmas? Advent is the four weeks immediately before Christmas. The color is Blue for all four weeks except the third week which is Pink.
Christmas is White or Gold and stays up until Epiphany which starts in early January.

Be Liturgically Correct… or at least close!
Epiphany’s liturgical color is Green, Navy, or White depending on the church you attend. Therefore you would want the background color of your worship banner to be one of those colors.
Next is Lent, which is the 40 days before Easter. That color is usually purple. This is a time of introspection before the celebration of Christ’s resurrection at Easter. Hence most Liturgical Banners should also be primarily purple.
Palm Sunday, the Sunday before Easter, is also purple.
Good Friday is still Purple but some churches use Black.
Then comes Easter, Yeah, Resurrection Sunday! White is the color of the day! Gold is also used.
“It’s important to get your Liturgical Banner colors right… but Moses didn’t write it in the law!
Pentecost is Red, and when it’s not Red, it’s Red.
It is always Red.
This is the day the gift of the Holy Spirit came as a flame over the heads of believers that day.
Liturgical Banners for Pentecost are Red.
