Uruguay Flag

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: Uruguay

The Church of the Nazarene officially entered Uruguay in 1949.

Uruguay had a population of 3,461,734 in 2019. That same year, Uruguay reported 76 Churches of the Nazarene, 73 of which had been officially organized. Uruguay has 6,449 total members.

Uruguay has two Phase 3 districts. It is a part of the South America Region.

* = 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.
