Flags of the Nations: Belize

Flags of the Nations: Belize

by | 03 Sep, 2018
The flag is royal blue with a white disc at the center containing the national coat of arms held by a mestizo and a black man surrounded by 50 mahogany leaves. The flag is bordered at top and bottom by two red stripes. The colors on the flag are respectively those of the country's national parties, the People's United Party and United Democratic Party. The 50 leaves recall 1950, the year PUP came to power.

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: Belize

The Church of the Nazarene officially entered Belize in 1934.

Belize had a population of 360,346 in 2017. That same year, Belize reported 61 Churches of the Nazarene, 59 of which are officially organized. Belize has 4,011 total members.

Located on the Mesoamerica Region, Belize has one Phase 3 district and one Phase 2 district. For more information about the Mesoamerica Region, visit mesoamericaregion.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.
