The New Apostolic Church is a Christian denomination headquartered in Zurich,
Switzerland, but with congregations in many nations. There are photos of its
official flag at
The caption, describing a church event in Arizona, US, says "On Loan from Zurich, Switzerland: A church flag from the international office was on loan to the Phoenix and Tempe congregations. The flag has flown in front of the administration building of the international church office for the last 3 years. This flag was flown at our outdoor church service at Kiwanis Park. The flag was returned to Zurich to be retired."
The flag of the New Apostolic Church bears the church logo on a light blue
field. The logo is drawn in white outline, depicting a latin cross whose base
rises from a circle resembling a sunrise over a body of water.
The logo can be found on the denomination's webpage at http://www.nak.org/home-gb.html
A little on the symbolism of the logo used on the church's flag:
" Together, the Cross, the rising sun, and the waves of the sea, illustrate the trinity of God -- the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost (Holy Spirit). Separately they are this: The Cross - symbolizes the sacrifice of Jesus for our Salvation (through his death, eternal life was opened to us). The Rising Sun - the 10 rays of the sun symbolize the divine laws and commandments. The Waves of the Sea - symbolize the Apostle Ministry and all other ministries as well as the 4 walls of our Faith (The Apostles Doctrine, Fellowship, Breaking of Bread and Prayer)."

Description of flag:
The ratio is approx. 14:5. It is a white flag with a blue rectangle, containing the logo of the church, near the top. Beneath the rectangle is a black inscription "Neuapostolische"(1st line) "Kirche"(2nd line)". The logo shows in the blue field a white cross above a sun rising upon water.

I spotted this flag at Congress Center Hamburg(CCH) on 6 September 2008.
