Catholic Church flag

Religious(?) flag spotted throughout the country of horizontal white/blue-- often next to a Vatican flag stripped of its coat of arms.
Luc Baronian, 18 May 1999

The Vatican striped flag is the flag of the Catholic church. Concerning this white and blue flag, would it have been in France, I would have immediately said that it was a horizontal version of the flag of Jeanne d'Arc, but I think this is a flag related here to the Virgin Mary. See for instance the origin of the blue colour in the former French king's coat of arms.

If by w/b you mean white/blue (not black), then the flag is the Marian flag - it is a bicolour of the colours associated with Mary in the Polish usage. I remember when I was in Poland as a child in 1974, I acquired a Polish flag, a yellow/white flag and a white/blue flag.

I see the marianist flag and is white over light blue (celeste) better that dark blue. In my city (and I believe in other cities too) is used with the local virgin in center.

I used the blue color of the Arms of Pope John-Paul II on the Vatican page for this image.
