When the Women Against Pit Closures (WAPC) movement first came into being in 1984 the only banners the women had were bits of cardboard with a few slogans scrawled on them.
The movement has certainly grown since then - and is still a political force to be reckoned with and still campaigning for jobs and for social justice.
Over the past almost 30 years many banners have been waved - but the biggest and most impressive yet has taken three years to create and is currently in the WAPC office in Barnsley.
It is the work of artist Andrew Turner, son of a miner from West Lothian, and featured on one side are two of the original activists from Barnsley Anne Scargill and Betty Cook.
It features horses at Orgreave, miners' lamps, tins of soup and much more from the strike and the years after.
Anne and Betty say they are delighted and proud of the new banner.
Anne said: ‘WAPC is as relevant today as it was when it first started. We have an energy crisis and there are millions of tonnes of coal beneath our feet. We have to campaign for the case for coal."
