If you are on this page you must be wanting more knowledge and understanding in  flag use for CHURCH!  I would like to give you my revelation on flag ministry in church. 

There are three groups of flags on this website.

1. Dance flags  - for personal celebration use and congregational celebration  use- this type flag can come in all sizes.

2. Glory bannerflags  - To magnify the Lord in the congregation of the saints-  this type of flag should only come in large or x large sizes to maginify the Lord with respect to Him. Magnify Him in front of the congregation of the saints. 

3. Prayer  bannerflags- This style flag can come in med. to large size . Intercessor flags are usually used in worshipful settings> I also recommend them to be used on prayer journeys to lands that the Lord would have you go and interceed. I hope to visit Israel with a group of women and take our banners with us.  You could take a group of intercessors and gather your banners and go up to a place the Lord would have you travel.

Here's my list:

 CelebrationBannerflags to Praise the Lord in the Dance flags-   some sizes are for personal worship and some are created for Congregational use- see catalogue page for specifics. 

 Here's my dance flags: New Beginnings, Freedom, River flags, Fire flags, Joy flags and Joyful, white dove, solid flags, rejoice, fragrant oil, fragrant praise, Hallelujah,restored (new) With God All Things Are Possible,River dance flag, -Lion of Judah,fire flags,  all streamers and billows.

 GloryBanners/IMG_2818.JPG dance flag "New Beginnings"   creation for 2014 is (It's a new day) coming soon. New Ministry tool:  JoyFUlGloryBanners/IMG_5660.jpg

GloryBanners/IMG_2989.JPG Congregational bannerflag "Hallelujah"-- This one will transform in 2014. NEw look coming soon.

The dance flag is a flag that can have expressive  words  expressing the dance, but it's not for those that are wanting to see the word on the flag. The congregation is enjoying the dance not the flag so the flag is just an extension of the emotion of the person using it. It wouldn't matter if the flag was solid or had a word on it, it's the person that is the most important element of expression. These expressive words New beginnings, freedom, Joy are words that you don't have to pray about. You have your new beginning in Christ when you come to the Lord. You have the Joy of the Lord because He is your strength. You have the fire of God in your heart because you love him. You are free and you have your freedom in Christ because he has set you free. You don't have to pray about these things because you have them. you just have to rejoice!!!!!!!!!! in them.  You know the word is on the flag and thats all that matters. So, these flags I've listed can be words dance flags or solid flags.

Giving God Glorybannerflags

Glory bannerflags:

GloryBanners/IMG_2114.JPG Giving God Glory  bannerfag "Jesus"

Okay, the Glory bannerflags are banner and flags together. They are held up for the congregation of saints to see the words: Jesus, Yeshua, Emmanuel, El Shaddai, Lion of Judah, Grace, Hallelujah (praise the Lord), Joy or Rejoice, Grace, Wonderful, Counselor,Everlasting Father, Messiah . There's so many. I do show a few on this site for purchase.

 When you magnify the Lord you lift Him up!!!!!!   When you magnify Him in praise and worship with singing and banners and dance you lift him up. Now, you can lift him up without banners. All you have to do is magnify the name of the Lord and you lift Him up! I hope you're getting this! If you magnify the Lord you can lift Him up, hahahahha. Yes you can. You really can. If you lift His name up with banners you much more magnify the Lord . You lift him with dance. You lift him with singing. you lift Him through prayer. It's all about lifting up the name of Jesus. He is Glory!!!!!!!!

new ones coming:  Praise the Lord of Hosts!!,-  2014 coming soon.    JEREMIAH 33; 11       THE LORD OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS,  JEREMIAH 33: 16- 2014 coming soon.

VS. 9 Then it shall be to Me a name of Joy, a praise, and an honor before all nations of the earth, who shall hear all the good that I do to them; they shall fear and tremble for all the goodness and all the prosperity that I provide for it. "Thus says the Lord: Again there shall be heard in this place-of which you say, "it is desolate, without man and without beast"-in the cities of Judah, in the streets of Jerusalem that are desolate, without man and without inhabitant and without beast, the voice of joy and the voice of gladness, the voice of the bridegroom and the voice of the bride, the voice of those who will say:  Praise the Lord of Hosts, for the Lord is good, For His mercy endures forever"- and of those who will bring the sacrifice of praise into the house of the Lord. For I will cause the captives of the land to return as at the first, says the lord.

 vs 15  ' In those days and at that time I will cause to grow up to David A Branch of righteousness; He shall execute judgment and righteousness in the earth. (that's our Jesus guys!) hEEEEEE hey!!  In those days Judah will be saved, and Jerusalem will dwell safelyl And this is the name by which she will be called:  THE LORD OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS.

Prayer banners

   Holy Spirit, Israel Flaming Heart.  New banner: Restored, Break-forth,  ((((I've shortened this list since I've received this revelation about the flags and banners. I will begin to seek the Lord and get more flags for this level  in worship.)))))) GloryBanners/IMG_2981.JPG  I will be creating a new banner for Healing. I am moved by the Holy SPirit I feel to create: Restored. 2014  new bannerflag:  Restored.GloryBanners/IMG_5654.jpg

 It's really simple. If you are believing for something you can write it down and look at it and seek the Lord and believe,  that His will come through for you. Okay, I've put words like breakthrough on the flag for you. You can lift up the prayer with this banners. Funny it's it but it's okay with the Lord. Just as long as you don't lift up yourself but lift up your prayers to him. We have to understand that God understands the things we don't understand. He's got our back you know!  Okay, If you have a heart right with the Lord and you lift up a banner with these words, God see and begins to work on your behalf. It's an awesome thing to love God and Know what pleases Him and I know that the banners I raise to Him pleases His heart.

We must begin to understand what we are entering into in the Lord. I want most of all for you to want His presence more than to understand Him or things about Him or the things about banners or flags. I want you to begin to want to enter into His presence. The Lord yearns for our presence. He wants to be with us. He wants us to be with Him all the time. I know that for sure. Find that time with him and then begin to allow God to breathe on you. Allow him to give you gifts and callings . Allow Him to show you things that are yet to come to pass. He will begin to breathe on your life and carry you into a new beginning and freedom only found in Him. Dance your new beginning in Christ.  Left up His name and bring in his presence.  Lift up that prayer unto the Lord because he cares.

Here is a list that I have put together to show you how many times specific words are mentioned in the Bible.

FLAGS:  A FLAG IS GENERALLY SMALLER THAN A BANNER.  FLAGS ARE OFTEN SOLID OR MULTI COLORED.  TROOP OR GROUP FLAGS SHOULD (IF POSSIBLE) BE DESIGNED WITHOUT WORDS. TEAM FLAGS WHETHER SOLID OR MULTI COLORED SHOULD  BE SIMPLY DESIGN, AS THIS WILL HELP TO PROLONG THE  LIFE OF THE FLAG.  

  I CALL MY TROOP FLAGS "MY WORKER FLAGS" BECAUSE OF THE FREQUENCY OF USE.  TROOP OR GROUP FLAGS ARE GREAT FOR CHILDREN AND TEENS.  

Vexillology

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Vexillology is the scholarly study of flags. The word is a synthesis of the Latin word vexillum, meaning 'flag', and the Greek suffix -logy, meaning 'study'. The vexillum was a particular type of flag used by Roman legions during the classical era; its name is a diminutive form of the word velum meaning 'sail', and thus literally means 'little sail'. Unlike most modern flags, which are suspended from a pole or mast along a vertical side, the square vexillum was suspended from a horizontal crossbar along its top side, which was attached to a spear.

The term was coined in 1957 by the American scholar Whitney Smith,[1] the author of many books and articles on the subject. It was originally considered a sub-discipline of heraldry, and is still occasionally seen as such. It is sometimes considered a branch of semiotics.[2] It is formally defined in the FIAV (Fédération internationale des associations vexillologiques) constitution as "the creation and development of a body of knowledge about flags of all types, their forms and functions, and of scientific theories and principles based on that knowledge." A person who studies flags is a vexillologist; a person who designs flags is a vexillographer; and any person who simply likes, admires, or enjoys flags is a vexillophile.

Every second year FIAV organizes the International Congress of Vexillology (ICV). The 2007 ICV was in Berlin, Germany; the 2009 ICV was in Yokohama, Japan; the 2011 ICV will be held in Washington, DC, USA (washingtonflagcongress.org). Internet activity of vexillologists is centered on the Flags of the World website and mailing list.

PERSONAL WORSHIP WITH A FLAG:

I RECOMMEND THAT WHEN SOMEONE IS RELEASING A DANCE UNTO THE LORD, THAT THEY USE AS LARGE A FLAG AS POSSIBLE.  THE SWEEPING OF THE FLAG IS A BEAUTIFUL AND GRACEFUL WAY TO COMMUNICATE FEELING AND EMOTION, AND IT'S HARD TO DO THAT WHEN YOU ARE USING A SMALL, INCONSPICUOUS FLAG. 

IF YOU ARE PRESENTING A SOLO DANCE I RECOMMEND THAT YOU USE A FLAG AT LEAST 30" WIDE BY 50" LONG.  DESIGNS ON FLAG SHOULD STAY SIMPLE .  REMEMBER YOUR DANCE IS WHAT COUNTS, NOT THE FLAG ITSELF.  THE PEOPLE ARE ENJOYING YOUR WORSHIP  IN  DANCE, NOT JUST THE FLAG.

How should flags or banner type flags be used in a worship service?  Have you ever asked yourself these questions?  Well, I have.  If you're on this site you are obviously interested in some type of praise flag or banner.  My (feeling) personal  belief is that when we worship the King, not just any ole flag will do.  I believe that proclaiming KINGDOM words on the  large silk praise banners releases faith and builds us up in Christ.  Words such as "new beginnings";"restored"; "healing"; "Hallelujah"; "freedom";"victory";  and "liberty" are just a few designs that Raised Praise offers.  I also design x large silk bannerflags that say the names of God, i.e., "Adonai"; "Jesus""Emmanuel" and Hosanna.   The word: Bannerflag was given to me by the LORD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 

THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN FLAGS AND BANNERS

BANNER:  AN ENSIGN OR SIGNAL TO SHOW A SYMBOL OR

History

It is probable that almost as soon as men began to collect together for common purpose some kid of conspicuous object was used as the symbol of the common sentiment, for the rallying point of the common force. In military expeditions where any degree of organization and discipline prevailed, objects of such a kind would be necessary to mark out the lines and stations of encampment and to keep in order the different bands when marching or in battle.

In addition, it cannot be doubted that flags or their equivalent have often served by reminding men of past resolves, past deeds and past heroes, as to arouse to enthusiasm or family pride and honor of personal devotion, patriotism or religion, which as well as upon good leadership, and numerical force, success in warfare depends.  It appears that several companies of the Egyptian army had their own particular standards.   These were formed of such objects as there is reason to believe, were associated in the minds of the men with feelings or owe and devotion.  Sacred animals, boats, emblems of figures, a tablets bearing a kings name and fan and feather=shaped symbols were raised on the end of a staff as standards and the office of bearing this was once taken as an answer to prayer, and an assurance of celestial aid.  It was for with adopted as the danish flag and called the dannebrog.  The principal varieties of flags borne during the middle ages were the pennon, the banner and the sstandard. The guyhommes or guidons, banderolls, pennon cells, streamers of pendants, may be considered as minor varieties.  The pennon as a purely personal ensign,sometimes pointed, but more generally forked or swallow-tailed at the end.  The banner was, in the earlier days of chivalry, a square flag, though at a later date it is often found greater in length than in depth, precisely as is the case in the ordinary national flags of today.  In some very early examples it is found considerably longer in the depth on the staff than in its outward projection from the staff.  The banner was charged in a manner exactly similar to the shield of the owner, and it was borne by knights bannerett and all above then in rank.  As a rough guide it may be taken that the banner of an emperor was 6 ft. square for a king.

As the function of the banner was to display the armorial bearings of the dignitary who had the right to carry it, is evident that the square form was the most convenient akin to the shield of primal heraldry. In fact, flags were originally heraldic emblems, though  in modern devices the strict laws of heraldry have often been departed from. They was looked upon as one of peculiar privilege and honor, somewhat similar seen to have been the customs of the Assyrians and Jews.  Banners and standards and ensigns are frequently mentioned in the bible.  Every man of the children of Israel shall pitch by his standard with the ensign of their fathers house.

*Who is she that looketh forth as the morning, fair as the moon, clear s the sun, terrible as an army with banners.

The Persians bore an eagle fixed to the end of a lance, and the sun, as their divinity , was also represented upon their standards.

Figures of animals, as the wolf, horse, bear and others were borne, and it was not till a later period that the eagle became the special standard of the legion. 

Early flags were almost purely of a religious character roman missionary agustine said to have borne a banner which silver crosses were displayed. The national banner of england for centuries, the red cross of st. George was a religious one, in fact the aid of religion seems ever to have been sought to give sanctity to national flags and the origin of many can be traced to a sacred banner and in notably the case with the oriflamme of France and the dannybrook of Denmark.  King alderman of denmar, leading, his troops to battle against the enemy in 1219, saw at a critical moment a cross in the sky. This was once taken as an answer to this prayer, and an assurance of celestial aid. It was adopted as the danish flag and called the dannebrog. Before the declaration of independence the flags of those colonies which now form the united states of America were very various.  In the early days of new england the puritans objected to the red cross of st. George, not from any disployalty to the mother country, but from a conscientious objection to that they deemed an idolatrous symbol, by the year 1700 most of the colonies had devised badges to distinguish their vessels from those of england and of each other. On the 14th of June 1777 congress resolved that the flag of the united states be thirteen stripes, alternate red and white; that the Unionbe thirteen stars, white in a blue field, representing a new constellation. The was the origin of the national flag, but at first, as the number of the stripes were having seven white and six red stripes, and at the other times seven red and six white, and it was not for some considerable time it was authoritatively laid down that the latter arrangement was the one to be adopted.      

NSE OF RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE BEARER TO BE CLEAR IN HIS MESSAGE OR THE MESSAGE OF HIS STAFF OR BANNER HE IS HERALDING.

 WORSHIP WITH A BANNER 

WHEN RAISING A BANNER, WHETHER IT'S HEAVY CLOTH OR LIGHT WEIGHT SILK, YOU ARE DECLARING THE MESSAGE UPON THE BANNER AND THAT IS THE MOST IMPORTANT FOCUS.
