Are you thoroughly exploring fabric church banner options? In case you are not aware, there are a wide range of cost-effective fabric church banner options to choose from that you can consider without compromising on traditions.

Banners Made From Brocades

When you look for an Orthodox processional church banner, you want it to be in the traditional style. Gonfalon or khorugv are rectangular pieces of cloth that are pointed or swallow tailed and hang from a horizontal crossbar attached to a vertical pole. In the middle is the icon which can be lithographic or embroidered. Church banners usually have fringes around the edges and tassels as part of adornment. The simplest fabric church banners that comply with these requirements cost under two hundred dollars. Brocade material, which has a grand effect, and lithography are used to bring church banners to life in an inexpensive manner.

Banners Made From Velvet and Wool

For a slightly more generous budget, you can purchase religious banners made from German velvet or wool. On some banners, the icon may be imprinted using lithography techniques whereas ...
... on others, the icon is embroidered using high quality German Madeira or Gunold threads. Embroidery is also used to decorate other areas of the banner. A church banner featuring intricate embroidery work costs more but is well worth the investment if your budget allows for it. For some items, customers can select the color of gonfalon from different liturgical colors such as red, blue, claret and green. Some banners come with the combination options such as blue-silver, blue-gold, red-gold, claret-gold and green-gold.

Sets of Two

Church banners are available as single items and in sets of two. Christ the Saviour and the Most Holy Theotokos are mostly featured on single banners. For some items, you can select the icon you want from a list of given options. You can opt for an icon of the Holy Trinity, an icon of Saint Nicholas the Wonder Maker, an icon of Saint George the Winner, an icon of Saint King David. In sets of two, most often one banner has an icon of Christ and the other banner has an icon of the Most Holy Theotokos. For some banners, the sets include a banner of an icon and another of a cross. Buying a set of two banners is more cost-effective than buying one and anyways, an Orthodox church will need both for various liturgical processions.

Side and Double Side Banners

Fabric church banners are light weight but they are made from strong, durable materials such as brocade, velvet and wool. Customers have another option – to go for single sided banners or invest in double sided banners. Double sided banners are more expensive but they help convey more, whether it is religious text or an icon. When not taken out in procession, they can be proudly displayed inside the church. Fabric church banners also include banners for children that are smaller in size and can be easily carried by children.
