Flying the Christian Flag PDF Print E-mail

Untitled-92flag flyingAll across the world, at churches, Christian schools, mission schools and communities - from Sudan to Japan, from Angola to Zambia, from the United States to South Africa, Christian flags are being raised.

What is the significance of the Christian flag and why are so many flying in the wind across Africa? The international Christian flag has a red cross to symbolise the blood of Christ, a blue square to symbolise heaven and white for the robes of righteousness.

In Exodus 17:15 we read: "Moses built an altar and called it: The Lord is my Banner."

Psalm 20:5 "We will shout for joy when you are victorious and will lift up our banners in the Name of our Lord."

Psalm 6:4 "But for those who fear You, You have raised a banner to be unfurled against the bow."

Song of Solomon 2:4 "And His banner over me is love."

Song of Solomon 6:4 "Majestic as troops with banners."

Isaiah 11:9-10 "Fprsident and flagor the earth will be full of the knowledge of the Lord as the waters cover the sea. In that day the root of Jesse will stand as a banner for the peoples; the nations will rally to Him...."

Isaiah 11:12 "He will raise a banner for the nations and gather the exiles...."

Isaiah 13:2 "Raise a banner on a love bare hilltop, shout to them; beckon to them to enter the gates..."

Isaiah 18:3 "All you people of the world, you who live on the earth, when a banner is raised on the mountains you will see it..."

In Sudan "Beyond the rivers of Cush" these prophesies are being fulfilled as churches fly the Christian flag, even in the Nuba Mountains. When the enemy comes in like a flood, God will raise up a standard to which the righteous can rally.


By flying the Christian flag we are testifying to the salvation which can only come through Christ's sacrifice on the cross. "Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other Name under Heaven given to men by which we must be saved." Acts 4:12

The Christian flag proclaims the Lordship of Jesus Christ, that He is "The King of kings and the Lord of lords."

The kingdom of the world has become the Kingdom of our Lord and of His Christ, and He will reign forever and ever." Revelation 11:15

The Christian flag is a reminder that we who are Christians are also citizens of the Kingdom of God. "But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God that you may declare the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His wonderful light." 1 Peter 2:9

The Christian flag celebrates the victory of the cross of Christ. "And having disarmed the powers and authorities, He made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them by the Cross." Colossians 2:15

May the Christian flags continue to inspire us to stand firm, to fight the good fight of faith, and to overcome evil by the blood of the Lamb and by the Word of our testimony (Revelation 12:11). Let us raise Christ's banner for the nations and proclaim the Lordship of Christ.
