Christian Reformed Church / Reformed Church (USA)

The Christian Reformed Church is part of the worldwide family of churches descended from the Reformed Church of the Netherlands, an offshoot of an 1832 separation in the Reformed Church which took place back in the Netherlands. 19th Century immigrants brought this to the US, where the CRC was first established in 1857. The church which is the direct lineal descendant of the church established in New Netherland is another denomination - the Reformed Church in America (formerly the Protestant Dutch Reformed Church in the United States) [Source: Historical Atlas of Religion in America, Edwin S. Gaustad; see also for a detailed description of the various branches of the Reformed Church in the US and the Netherlands ]

The CRC magazine is called 'The Banner', and an illustration of its current issue can be found at It is not clear whether the cover of this magazine depicts an actual banner or not. In any event, I have e-mailed the Church to find out if they have an actual church banner or flag.
