OUTDOOR EPISCOPAL FLAG
Our Episcopal flag is made out of high-quality nylon for reliable everyday use in all types of weather. It’s lightweight enough to flap even in the slightest of breezes, but heavy-duty enough to stand up to the winds. It will dry quickly after a rainstorm thanks to its nylon construction and also will stand up to the sun with a durable screen printing for heat resistance.
Select from a range of sizes for your Episcopal flag for whatever may fit your outdoor flagpole, but keep in mind that our 3’ x 5’ is our most popular flag size. Whatever size you may choose, fly your new flag with confidence thanks to its tough canvas header and rust-proof brass grommets.

EPISCOPAL FLAG HISTORY & DESIGN
The Episcopal Church is one of the oldest active churches founded in America, dating to just after the American War of Independence. The Episcopal church was based on the Anglican order, though as the colonies fought for independence, older English religious practices fell out of style and the new Episcopal way was formally founded in 1785.
The Episcopal flag is said to have been designed by William Baldwin, a representative of the New York Diocese at the first Episcopalian convention. He designed it with the intent of making it the symbol of the new Christian denomination.
The red cross in the design is known as St. George’s cross. St. George is the patron saint of England, and the red and white cross design that bears his name has become a popular symbol of both the country and the Anglican church. The X-shaped cross in the top left corner is called a Saltire, and this particular blue-and-white design is based on the St. Andrew’s saltire; likewise to England, St. Andrew is the patron saint of Scotland.
The coloration was selected not only as a reflection of the Episcopal denomination being founded in America but also for Christian symbolic reasons as well. The white represents Jesus Christ’s purity, the red for the blood spilled in Christ’s sacrifice, and the blue for the sky and Jesus’ faithfulness.
Baldwin unfortunately did not live to see his design become the main symbol of the Episcopal faith in his lifetime, but it was finally officially adopted after decades of popular use in 1940.
