  1. Copy the code provided.

How to apply your new banner in-game

TaleWorlds Entertainment disabled the ability to paste code into the banner screen, so we need to install a mod to re-activate this feature.

  1. Download the BannerPaste mod.
  2. Copy across the folder to your Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord install, inside the modules folder.
  3. Right-click the two DLL files within the mod folder you just copied across to the M&B install.
  4. Choose "Properties".
  5. Uncheck the block box to unblock them. (This is important, else Windows will prevent the files from loading and cause the game to crash.)
  6. Open up Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord.
  7. Activate the BannerPaste mod.
  8. Load your game.
  9. Hit B to take you to the banner editor.
  10. Hit CTR + V to paste the code into the game.

Enjoy your new custom banner!
