BMC has used a number of banners over the years.


Sketch by Jamie Carlin of banner made by him & used in the 60s. BMC is known to have participated in the 1956, 1957, 1958, 1967, 1968 & 1969 Waratah Festivals.
Waratah Spring Festivals were held between 1956 & 1973    (Jamie Carlin collection)

Today we have 2 handmade banners plus several commercial banners.
