Banner Messages

Red Line

Banners must inform and inspire. They must communicate their message at a glance -bearing in mind that they are often carried outside where they may be blown in the wind, seen at an angle or partly obscured.

 

The most successful banners have strong and simple designs. Some of the more common symbols on miners’ banners include

Clasped hands = unity is strength (often used by trade unions)
Dove = peace
Globe = internationaliam

The colours can also be symbolic
Red = labour, courage
Purple = ambition, dignity
Gold = ambition
Green = long cherished hopes, new life
White = purity, honour
Black = aggression
