This banner stand is 78" tall by 33" wide and features the image of St. Patrick. Fully retractable and stored in an aluminum case, it takes less than a minute to extend the telescopic pole and unroll the St. Patrick 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 St. Patrick and other Saints.
Painted in power and glory, St. Patrick is depicted in his green Irish vestments (with shamrocks on them, which he used to catechize people about the Trinity!), boldly commanding hissing snakes - evil and sin that had entered Ireland - to leave the beloved land. This Saint and Bishop, who brought the Irish people to Christ and to the Church, lived in the 4th and 5th centuries and was originally taken captive by Irish pirates from his homeland (Britain). After many years, he escaped and was reunited with his family. However, after becoming a priest and Bishop, he was sent back to the land of his captivity, where he converted thousands of people from violence to God. St. Patrick, please increase the boldness of our faith and our trust in God, ever bringing us and our families closer to Jesus.
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.
