The second largest Mormon denomination, after the Utah-based Church of Jesus
Christ of Latter Day Saints, is the Community of Christ, formerly known as the
Reorganized Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. The church has a
membership of approximately 137,000 in the US [2004 World Almanac], with a
world- wide total of c. 250,000 [Adherents.com].
A photo page from their website shows that the church has its own flag- one
among many carried in a flag procession at their 2004 World Conference http://www.cofchrist.org/wc2004/Photos/03-28-flag/
...scroll down about 2/3 of the page.
The flag is medium blue with narrow light blue borders along the top and bottom, but not along the fly. The center of the flag bears the church seal. A graphic of that seal can be seen at http://www.cofchrist.org/graphics/seal/. The seal shows 3 figures- a child, a lion, and a lamb. Further info on the seal can be found at http://www.cofchrist.org/graphics/sealstyle.asp.

A much larger and clearer photo of the flag is at
Also, in 1996, under the then-current name of Reorganized Church of the Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (Canada) the denomination's Canadian branch received its own flag from the Canadian Heraldric Authority. The flag is described as "Purpure charged with the Badge of The Reorganized Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (Canada)," (although the image looks more blue than purple). The flag is similar to the general denominational flag, but lacks the stripes, and the badge/seal is only gold and the field color.
