This is a striking and meaningful banner that is filled with sybolism (see below).

Symbolism of Altar of Incense Banner:

Altar of Incense: The altar of incense is a powerful picture of prayer. In Psalm 141:2 David says,"May my prayer be set before you like incense."

Bells and pomeganates: The high priest wore bells and pomegranates around the hem of his garment as he went in to minister before the Lord (Exod 28:34-35). There are nine of each on the banner. Nine is the number of the Holy Spirit. The bells are the nine gifts of the Spirit and the pomegranates are the nine fruit of the Spirit.

Cord: Hosea 11:4 (NIV) says that the Lord led His people with cords of human kindness and with ties of love.

Fringe: The children of Israel were to make fringe on the borders of their garments to help remind them of the commands of their Lord (Num 15:38-39 KJV).

Breastpiece: The gold squares with the twelve rhinestones on them represent the breastpiece that the high priest wore. The twelve stones were the twelve tribes of Israel that he represented as he went in before the Lord. In the same way that the high priest represented the whole nation of Israel, as we go in before the Lord in prayer, we do not only go on our own behalf, but on behalf of the whole body of Christ.
