History of Some Religious Flags
Christian Religious Flags
The Christian flag was born into the Christian fellowship over one hundred years ago. Today, some 244,000 churches display one or more Christian flags in their sanctuaries and classrooms. Christian flags were designed by Charles Overton in 1897. Red cross stands for the Christian faith, God's love for man and the promise of eternal life. Blue represents Christ's faithfulness unto death. White background signifies purity, innocence and peace.
Israeli Religious Flags
The flag of The State of Israel includes two blue
stripes on white background with a Shield (Star) of David in the center. This design was first displayed in Rishon-LeZion in 1885
and was also used at the First Zionist Congress in 1897 (Encyclopaedia Judaica,
1971). It was inspired by the tallit (the prayer shawl with blue stripes worn by
Jews during prayer) as a symbol. The Star of David is a common symbol of the
People of Israel from Biblical times. The flag was adopted officially on October
28, 1948 (25 Tishre, 5709) by the Speaker of the Provisional Council of State.

"The things that the flag stands for were created by the experiences of a great people. Everything that it stands for was written by their lives. The flag is the embodiment, not of sentiment, but of history." ~ Woodrow Wilson
