Nylon Christian Flag FAQs
Who designed the Christian Flag and how did it come about?
The Christian Flag was designed by Charles C. Overton of New York. He was asked to speak at Brighton Chapel on Coney Island in Brooklyn, at a Sunday School kick-off because the guest speaker did not show. During his speech he noticed the American flag near-by and started speaking about the flag and it’s symbolism, which spurned the idea that Christians should have their own flag. So he added a verbal picture of what the Christian’s flag might look like to his speech. The idea of a Christian Flag stayed on his mind so he teamed up with Ralph Diffendorfer in 1907 to produce and promote the flag and it was adopted by the United States Federal Council of Churches in 1942.
What is the design on the Christian Flag and what does it represent?
The Christian flag has a white field with a blue canton on which lies a red cross. The white represents purity, peace, and forgiveness. The blue stands for truth, loyalty, and heaven. The red cross symbolizes the blood shed by Christ by His work of salvation. (Thomas Nelson)

What is the pledge to the Christian Flag?
The pledge to the Christian Flag is as follows: “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 for all who believe.”
Why is the Christian Flag called a “free flag”?
Christian flags are called a free flag because it has no earthly bonds or allegiances. It has no ruler except for Christ and Christ alone. It exists for ALL of the world’s people without limitation. The flag cannot be controlled by any Nation or denomination. It freely belongs to everyone but is owned by no one.
