The Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) is a Protestant denomination which was founded on the American frontier in the early 19th century, and it is still largely concentrated within the US. Its current membership is probably somewhere between 800,000 and 1,000,000. According to the website of one of its local congregations the denomination has a flag- "The Disciples Flag has only the Red Chalice on a white background" (http://www.doverplacecc.org/symbols.htm) but unfortunately it shows no image of the flag, and I have been unable so far to find one elsewhere. However there are a great many images to be found of the red chalice logo that the church uses, which should give a good idea of what the flag must look like. For example, see:
http://www.disciples.org/
http://www.fccmassillon.org/
http://www.1st-christian-denton.org/AboutDOC.htm
http://www.cokesbury.com/search.aspx?scope=all&query=disciples&sectionId=6  for use of the logo on church vestments

A brief description of the symbolism and origin of the logo can be found at http://www.dishistsoc.org/Chalice.htm. Note that it does not specifically say that the logo is used on an official flag, but does say it is authorized for use on banners to identify affiliation with the church, which to my mind is pretty close to the same thing.
