The New Covenant Church of God (http://www.nccg.org/Banners-HP.html)
lists 20 different flags they have, with links to large images and descriptions
of 10 of them and a further 20 proposed flags (the "Miscellaneous" link)
NOTE - The New Covenant Church of God has no connection to the Church of God of Prophecy or any other offshoot of the Church of God (Cleveland, Tennessee) or to the Church of God (Anderson, Indiana)
Ned Smith, 31 January 2005
The Banner of the General Church (New Covenant Church of God as a whole) was given by revelation in a vision on 7 December 1994 (see NC&C 358) and started coming into use in 1996-7. It consists of a blue background (the primary Church colour) and the Lion of Judah (Yeshua haMashiach - Jesus Christ) rampant, wearing the kingly Patriarchal Crown and holding the Sceptre of Authority. It therefore symbolises, as a whole, the divine mandate given to the New Covenant Church of God by the Lord Jesus Christ to effect its mission to gather the elect into 12 Firstborn Communities and to prepare the patriarchs and matriarchs or the Holy Order for theocratic government in the Millennium.
An earlier version of the General Church Flag consisting of four quadrants arranged in a saltire, and arranged in the Church colours, was proposed in 1995. The consensus of the Patriarchate favoured the simpler design and the latter fell into disuse.
