A Funeral Pall (also called mortcloth) is a cloth that covers a casket or coffin at funerals. The colour of the pall and use vary depending on religious and cultural traditions. Commonly today palls are pure white, to symbolize the white clothes worn during baptism and the joyful triumph over death brought about by the Resurrection. The colour of the pall is not fixed and may vary with the liturgical season. Traditionally the pall, as well as the vestments of the clergy were black. The pall is often decorated with a cross, often running the whole length of the cloth from end to end in all four directions, signifying the sovereignty of Christ s triumph over sin and death on the cross.
