The Illager banner is a special banner type that can be carried by the Illager captain. 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 on collecting the banner first (As of 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.
  • Though witches sometimes participate in raids along side other illagers, they cannot wield the banner.
