Many churches display an indoor flag presentation set on the stage of their congregation.

We also carry Indoor Christian Flags if you are simply looking to replace the flag on your existing indoor presentation hardware.

Some churches also display the Christian flag outdoors in front of the congregation on an in-ground or wall-mount pole. If you are looking for a replacement flag to fly outdoors, our durable nylon outdoor flags will be the right option. Likewise, if you are looking to purchase outdoor flagpoles or hardware, we can assist with that as well.

History of the Christian Flag

The Christian Flag is an important emblem used to represent various denominations of Christianity. The three main branches of Christianity are Catholic, Protestant, and Eastern Orthodox, however, the Christian Flag serves to represent all denominations including Anglican, Baptist, Mennonite, Methodist, Moravian, Lutheran, and Quaker, among many others. The flag is comprised of a white background with a dark blue canton. Although no specific proportions are designated for the flag, the canton takes up half of the total height and features a bright red cross. The red color is symbolic of the blood that Jesus sacrificed, the blue represents Jesus' faithfulness, and the white represents Jesus' purity and heaven. The simplicity of the flag's design serves to remind Christians of all denominations that they worship the same God.

The design of the flag was created by Sunday School teacher, Charles Overton in 1897. When a scheduled speaker failed to arrive, Overton delivered an improvised presentation where he collaborated with students to imagine what a Christian Flag ought to look like. The outcome was the modern day Christian flag. Years later, in 1942 the design was officially adopted as the Christian Flag.

The design of the Christian flag embodies the goal of the ecumenical movement, whose purpose was to unify the various sects of Christianity. The aim is to avoid conflicts such as those between Protestantism and Roman Catholicism and instead to develop a mutual respect among each denomination of the other denominations traditions while still finding the common ground that they all worship the same god.

The Christian Flag is distributed without copyright, meaning it is free to use by all. A related song entitled "The Christian Flag" was written by Fanny J. Crosby to celebrate the flag. This song is also distributed freely without copyright. The free-distribution is designed to embody the meaning of the flag's call for cooperation and unity.

Christianity is the world's most popular religion, boasting over 2 billion believers. In fact, many of the flags representing various countries of the world include the Christian Cross as a symbol of their citizens belief in the religion. For example, the flags of Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Iceland, and Finland, among many other flags all include the Christian cross. The core belief held by followers of Christianity is that Jesus Christ was the son of god, the savior of humanity, and the Messiah which was predicted by the old testament. Across the various denominations of Christianity, the basic belief in Jesus are held, however, there are also many variances in the interpretation of the Bible and in the customs of worship.

One commonality amongst the various sects of Christianity is that they all gather for communal worship on Sundays. Sundays are chosen because Jesus was said to have been resurrected on a Sunday. Though all forms of Christianity gather on Sundays, there are some distinct differences in the services. For example, in Quakerism, believers are taught that "there is that of god in everyone." because of this, there is no presenter, but instead, followers sit in silence in a meeting room until a member is moved by God to speak. In contrast, Baptist evangelical ceremonies are very boisterous events with singing and dancing and are lead by a charismatic leader who guides the proceedings.

Regardless of the denomination that you follow, the Christian Flag serves as an important symbol of Unity among all followers of Jesus. Most churches display this flag in an indoor presentation on the stage of the congregation.
