I need help! My husband has asked me to research the origin of the Christian Flag. What I have found is that it came about in 1897 by Charles C. Overton at Brighton Chapel. It is known to be the official protestant flag. What I can't find is what denomination Overton or Brighton Chapel was. I did find out that the author of the pledge was Methodist. If in fact this is a protestant flag and baptist were never protestants, then why do we have them in our churches and say the pledge? Any more info on this would greatly be appreciated.
