Flags of the Nations: Liberia


The 11 stripes symbolize the 11 signatories of the Liberian declaration of independence. The red and white colors symbolize courage and moral excellence. The white star represents the freedom the ex-slaves were given and the blue square represents the African mainland.

Since September 1, 2009, the Church of the Nazarene's Global Ministry Center (GMC) proudly flies a flag each week of one of the many nations in which the denomination is present in ministry. Leaders were invited to send a national flag to be flown at the GMC alongside the flag of the United States*. The national flags rotate weekly, and photos of them raised are sent to the church leaders of that country.

This week: Liberia

The Church of the Nazarene officially entered Liberia in 1990.

Liberia had a population of 4,299,944 in 2016. That same year, Liberia reported 119 Churches of the Nazarene, 78 of which had been officially organized. Liberia has 7,824 total members.

Located on the Africa Region, Liberia has three Phase 2 districts. For more information about the Africa Region, visit africanazarene.org.

 

* = The weekly highlighted flag is raised on the middle of three poles in compliance with U.S. government protocols. It flies to the left of the GMC host-nation United States flag, which flies above the host-state flag of Kansas. The Christian flag flies on the third pole.

The Global Ministry Center is the mission and service hub of the Church of the Nazarene.
