500 Years Since the Beginning of the Reformation - 500 Years Proclaiming the Gospel of Jesus Christ

Reformation Banners


CANADA – Lutheran Church–Canada (LCC) is pleased to make available two banner patterns in commemoration of the 500th anniversary of the Reformation.

The first banner was designed by Kelly Klages. It shows Luther’s Rose, growing from the roots of the Reformation, while a cross stands in the background. Luther’s Rose was Martin Luther’s personal seal, and is widely recognized as a symbol for Lutheranism more generally. Its colours and symbols portray the doctrine of salvation by faith in Christ.

The second banner was designed by Barbara Kuehn, based on a concept by Philip Prozenko. The shadow of Martin Luther stands holding the Bible in hand, while a cross looms in the background. An adaptation of LCC’s Reformation anniversary logo sits on the bottom.

You can download image files for these banners here. Simply print them out and use an overhead projector to transfer the pattern to a larger piece of paper. Download the Luther Rose banner here. Download the Luther banner here.
