The Christian Flag Pledge

The Christian Flag pledge is a popular pledge to recite during Vacation Bible School (VBS). Below are the words.

The Christian Flag Pledge

The Christian Flag Pledge

I pledge allegiance to the Christian flag and to the Savior for whose kingdom it stands, one brotherhood uniting all Christians in service and love.

This flag is white with a blue square at the top corner, known as the canton has a Latin red cross inside.

The red on the cross represents the blood of Jesus Christ shed for us. The blue canton represents the water baptism.  The white area represents purity of Jesus. It also uses a white flag to show we surrender to God. I like the song by Chris Tomlin, White Flag.

We raise our white flag
We surrender
All to You
All for You

This pledge is recited standing up. Not to mention, you also salute this pledge like you the Pledge of Allegiance, with your hand over your heart.
The Christian Flag Pledge by Lynn Harold Hough in 1908 (Around the 20th Century and mostly used in the Protestant Churches).

You’ll see this flag flown outside of churches and even inside churches.
