MEN of God and Country envisions one nation, under God, with elected Christian statesmen and educators leading our communities and our country.
MEN of God & Country has chosen the Christian and American flags crossed as its emblem, logo, and lapel pin. The colors and design of each flag, as well as the pledges to each flag, reflect the mission, values, and vision of our organization.
The American Flag
Our Flag published in 1989 by the House of Representatives explains the significance of the American flag’s colors and design:
On July 4, 1776, the Continental Congress passed a resolution authorizing a committee to devise a seal for the United States of America. This mission, designed to reflect the Founding Fathers’ beliefs, values, and sovereignty of the new Nation, did not become a reality until June 20, 1782. In heraldic devices, such as seals, each element has a specific meaning. Even colors have specific meanings. The colors red, white, and blue did not have meanings for The Stars and Stripes when it was adopted in 1777. However, the colors in the Great Seal did have specific meanings. Charles Thompson, Secretary of the Continental Congress, reporting to Congress on the Seal, stated: “The colors of the pales (the vertical stripes) are those used in the flag of the United States of America; White signifies purity and innocence, Red, hardiness & valour, and Blue, the color of the Chief (the broad band above the stripes) signifies vigilance, perseverance & justice.”
Another book about the flag published in 1977 by the House of Representatives adds, “The star is a symbol of the heavens and the divine goal to which man has aspired from time immemorial; the stripe is symbolic of the rays of light emanating from the sun”
The Pledge of Allegiance to the American Flag
“I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the republic for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”
The Christian Flag
The Christian flag is the only free flag in the world. It is different from every other flag, religious or secular, ancient or modern. It is uncontrolled, independent, and universal. Unlike all national flags and all denominational flags, it has no earthly bonds or allegiances. Christ, and Christ alone, is its Master. Without limitation, it exists for the entire world’s people regardless of gender, ethnicity, nationality, socio-economic condition, or political affiliation. It cannot be restricted by any nation or by any denomination. This unique, universal quality equates it with the air we breathe: it belongs to all, yet it is owned by none. For those who want it, wherever and whenever, it is freely theirs.
The Christian flag is one of the oldest, unaltered flags in the world. It was conceived at Brighton Chapel, Coney Island, New York, Sunday, September 26, 1897, and was presented in its present form the following Sunday by its originator. Call it chance, or providence, serendipity, or the plan of God, but on that day, the Christian flag was born.
The white on the flag represents purity and peace. The blue stands for faithfulness, truth, and sincerity. Red, of course, is the color of sacrifice, the color of the blood shed by Christ on Calvary’s cross.
The Christian Flag Pledge
“I pledge allegiance to the Christian Flag and to the Savior for whose kingdom it stands.
One brotherhood, uniting all mankind, in service and love.”
