‘The Spirit of Counsel gives us His advice’
This beautiful orange banner represents the middle ground between red and yellow, taking the qualities of warmth and enthusiasm, passion and joy, compassion and wisdom.
The colours of orange and indigo are paired to represent how God operates in our lives. Orange represents God’s counsel and advice about what we do. Indigo represents God’s Might – the authority and omnipotence to make things happen. Orange reminds us of a fire’s warmth and the comfort we feel when we follow God’s leading through the Spirit of Counsel.
Warmth, enthusiasm, passion, joy, compassion, comfort and counsel

Colours, the Holy Spirit and the Hebrew Menorah:
Throughout Scripture, we see how God uses colours to communicate with mankind (Exodus 28:5). In particular, God spoke a promise to us through the colours of the rainbow after the flood (Genesis 9:13). Since God is light and in Him there is no darkness at all (1 John 1:5), these rainbow colours might be seen to represent aspects of His total character. James 1:17 tells us that every good gift comes down from the Father of lights (plural).
The Holy Spirit is ushering in a new dimension of worship which involves the use of colour in banners and garments. The Holy Spirit manifests himself as the seven fold spirit of the Lord in Isaiah 11:2 "And (1) the spirit of the LORD shall rest upon him, (2) the spirit of wisdom and (3 the spirit of) understanding, (4) the spirit of counsel and (5 the spirit of) might, (6) the spirit of knowledge and (7 the spirit) of the fear of the LORD”.
The seven colours of the rainbow can be seen to represent the Holy Spirit in His seven characteristics just as the temple lampstand, or in Hebrew "menorah", does according to Isaiah 11:2 and Revelation 4:5. The seven colours of the rainbow have been linked to the seven branches of the menorah following the traditional Hebrew pattern of reading right to left, beginning at the centre candle.
