This banner stand is 78" tall by 33" wide and features the image of the St. Clare by Simone Martini from the 13th century. Fully retractable and stored in an aluminum case, it takes less than a minute to extend the telescopic pole and unroll the St. Clare by Martini banner. Each unit includes a nylon travel bag for storage and transport, making the banner stand an excellent tool for priests, professors, and missionaries who travel and spread devotion to the saints.
As a fresco on display in the lower Church of San Francesco in Assisi, Italy, St. Clare is pictured in her humble purity holding a lily. At a young age, she dedicated herself to God and renounced her wealthy upbringing after being inspired by the teachings of St. Francis of Assisi. She began her own religious order after Francis', which became known for their austerity and the power of their prayer - once sending invaders away from Assisi by holding the Eucharistic Jesus in a monstrance up to them! St. Clare, pray for us that we may every rely on Jesus' salvific power to sustain and protect us.
From top-to-bottom, the banner stand measures approximately 78" tall when fully extended. In reality, the banner stand can be extended several inches more, but a total height of 78" is our recommendation for the best combination of visibility and stability.
