Just needing clarification please? Is this the flag often seen in Protestant churches? It has a white field and the upper left quadrant is blue with a red cross? The reason I ask is that the Catholic church has its own flag.

Best,
Vlad

PLEDGE TO THE CHRISTIAN FLAG

I pledge allegiance to the Christian Flag and to the Savior for whose Kingdom it stands. One Savior, crucified, risen, and coming again with life and liberty to all who believe.

From Wiki:

The Christian Flag was first conceived on September 26, 1897, at Brighton Chapel on Coney Island in Brooklyn, New York in the United States. The superintendent of a Sunday school, Charles C. Overton, gave an impromptu lecture to the gathered students, because the scheduled speaker had failed to arrive for the event. He gave a speech asking the students what a flag representing Christianity would look like.[7] Overton thought about his improvised speech for many years afterward. In 1907, he and Ralph Diffendorfer, secretary of the Methodist Young People's Missionary Movement, designed and began promoting the flag.

Thanks Terry for the history. I've seen this flag when I have had occasion to visit Protestant churches and I hadn't realized it had been around for so long. Also, I had never heard of the pledge. Always great to learn something. Smile
