In a world where many have a flag they fly to demonstrate their Pride, Christians can look to their flag to wave and show where their (heart) allegiance lies..

Christian Flag
The Christian Flag is an ecumenical flag designed in the early 20th century to represent all of Christianity and Christendom. Since its adoption by the Federal Council of Churches in 1942, it has been used by many Christian traditions, especially those of Protestant origin, including the Anglican, Baptist, Mennonite, Moravian, Lutheran, Presbyterian, Quaker, Reformed, and Methodist among others. Africa and the Americas are regions of the world where the flag remains popular. The flag has a white field, with a red Latin cross inside a blue canton. The shade of red on the cross symbolizes the blood that Jesus shed on Calvary. The blue represents the waters of baptism as well as the faithfulness of Jesus. The white represents Jesus' purity. The dimensions of the flag and canton have no official specifications.
