The Illager banner is a special banner type that can be carried by Illager captains. Killing an Illager captain that is not on a raid will give the player the Bad Omen effect (called ominous banner in Minecraft: Java Edition).

Illager banners can be found at pillager outposts and are dropped from raid captains. The Illager banner can be picked up by any Illager mob during a raid except ravagers. The mob will prioritize collecting the banner first (in Minecraft: Java Edition)


  • The Illager banner is the only banner type that cannot be crafted normally. It is also the only banner type that is dropped by mobs.
  • In Minecraft: Bedrock Edition, one is unable to put this banner on a shield.
  • Although witches sometimes participate in raids along side other illagers, they cannot wield the banner.
