Well, is not a "banner" properly but the frame that hold the text mentioned. It's in the space located in between the clock and the tower. Month ago there used to be a test with a real green banner, you may remember that.

Crazy.

Will the whole tower be lit at night in the future.
Now the clock is internally lit, but I mean the whole tower with just spotlights shining on it. Like you see in Europe with old historic buildings?
Would make it look a lot better.

For who doesn't know what I mean like his little dwarf father:

I think this will answer your question, moon beams will only be lit on special occasions.
