I took some images that are free to reproduce and resized/cropped them to the size of the current banner (1170x240). Unsplash suggests giving credit to the photographer, but it's not a requirement.

May I suggest you go for a more neutral banner since there are Christians that see the cross as a pagan symbol. I think D&C is trying to brand itself as all inclusive and reasearch orientated. The cross remains historically, politically and religiously a controverial symbol.


This is probablly copyrighted but an alternative banner for example might be...
