Build a Banner - Make your mark on match-day!

Look around the upper tier of Emirates Stadium on Saturday and you may notice something a little bit different!

Through the official Arsenal Facebook page at, supporters have been getting creative and designing their own banners, to mark the forthcoming celebrations around the Club’s 125th anniversary.

After receiving more than 5,000 entries to date, Saturday’s fixture versus West Bromwich Albion will see 22 of the most popular banners, as voted for by fans, installed at the Clock End and North Bank.

The first batch of winning designs, which you can view in the image gallery on this page, celebrates all aspects of the Club; from Gunners legends Dennis Bergkamp and Thierry Henry to iconic moments in Arsenal history such as Michael Thomas’ last-gasp Championship winning goal versus Liverpool back in 1989.

There is still time to make your mark on a matchday as another selection of winners will be produced ahead of the Everton match on December 10th.

To submit your own entry or vote on existing designs, log on to and click on the ‘Build a Banner’ app.

Closing date for entries is 30 April 2012. Terms and conditions apply.
