Introduction: Christian Falangist Party of America (CFPA)

Christian Falangist Party of America (CFPA) was founded in 2000 by former members of American Falangist Party who wanted to create a party of Christian right which would not be associated with any of Fascist ideologies. The name they adopted was originally used by the American Falangist Party until 1998 and, as in the case of their original party, it was meant to express the association with the Lebanese Phalanx (which, in fact, was originally modelled after the Spanish Phalanx as well, but gradually got rid of the associations with Fascism through the years). Another source of inspiration to the CFPA was the Fatherland Front, ruling party of pre-Anschluss Austria, which was both Christian Integralist and anti-Nazi in terms of ideology. Along with insisting on other issues typical for the Christian right, the party had a highly pronounced anti-Muslim and pro-Israeli attitude, which was reflected in founding of several affiliated organizations. It had also had some international activism, having assistied in founding of a Christian Falangist Party of Germany in 2006, but was much weakened in 2008, after many members left to found a National Capitalist Party, and was eventually disbanded in 2009, to be succeeded by a "politically active social organization" named Christian Phalange in 2010.

The flags and logos of Christian Falangist Party of America might have been actually designed by Patricio Cortes Bridges, a.k.a. Pat Bridges, its founder and first leader, who had also founded the American Falangist Party, the National Capitalist Party and the Christian Phalange. The symbols of all these organizations do generally look like they could have been designed by the same person, or at least by persons who follow the same ideology, and Pat Bridges was certainly their chief motivator and the most visible activist.

Christian Falangist Party of America
(2001-2003)

Christian Falangist Party of America flag image by Tomislav Todorovic, 7 September 2013

The first verified flag of the CFPA has appeared in December 2001. It was charged with a blue "Battle Cross" within a red ring, all on white field. The cross was derived from a similar one which is used by the Lebanese Forces. Although a whole range of flags for different purposes was created at the same time, all of them charged with the symbol, they were all abandoned in favor of new designs in 2003.

Possible Original CFPA Party flag (c2001)

Possible Early CFPA flag image by Tomislav Todorovic, 7 September 2013

The original party symbol was actually the unchanged cross of the Lebanese Forces. It was appearing at the homepage of the party website until the end of 2001, even after the "Battle Cross" and flags charged with it were introduced, to be replaced in the beginning of 2002. However, a flag charged with that cross might have existed before the "Battle Cross" flags: its small image, which has appeared at one page of the party website in December 2001 and remained there until April 2002, displays the cross in blue, within a red ring, on white field. Nothing else is known about that flag: it might have been adopted any time between the founding of CFPA and December 2001 or, considering that the original CFPA had also used that symbol (1985-1998), might have actually been its flag.

CFPA Party flag (2003-2009)

CFPA Party flag 2003-09 image by Tomislav Todorovic, 7 September 2013

New flag was introduced in July 2003 and remained in use until the party was disbanded. Instead of the "Battle Cross", it was charged with a crutch-cross, also in blue; other elements of the design remained unchanged. It was borrowed from the Fatherland Front of Austria with an anti-Nazi symbolism attributed, but also as the derivation of the Jerusalem cross - that is, a symbol of Crusades.

Variant and alternative CFPA flags

An image of the 2003 flag with blue and red colors reversed has appeared at the party website in late 2005, however the use of such flag was never confirmed by the party. The same is true for the image which displays crutch-cross and ring on a white disc, all on blue field.

(modified from the image from the party website)

In early 2007, two variants of the 2003 flag design have appeared. One of these has had the party name inscribed in white on a wider ring; both blue and red were in darker shades than usual.

The other variant has had the crutch-cross with a double fimbriation, outer in black and inner in white, which has caused all the charges be proportionally larger. The file name of its image suggests that it might have been used by the Directors, which is how the national and state level officials of the party were styled.

At the same time, a flag was introduced which was derived from that of the Lebanese Phalanx, with the schematic tree composed of alternating red and blue segments, so as to display the US national colors. This flag was sometimes charged with a white star on upper blue segment (second from the top), but usually was not.

All of these flags were shown at the website in vertical variants, the images of horizontal variants having been linked to the page. Whether both variants of each flag were indeed used, is yet to be verified.
Whichever were in use, they certainly remained so until the party was disbanded, as they were shown at the website all the time.

"The flag we can never use"

CFPA flag not to be used image by Tomislav Todorovic, 08 September 2013

The CFPA might be a unique case is vexillology by prescribing a flag design which was meant never to be used: a white disc, charged with a black crutch-cross within a red ring, all on red field. This was probably prescribed because a similar image was sometimes appearing on the party website and the pattern might have misled the visitors to attribute the site to a neo-Nazi group (an image resembling the said flag was usually shown on the same page).

CFPA Naval Flag

CFPA Naval flag image by Tomislav Todorovic, 9 September 2013

Each of the official party flags was accompanied with a "jack" or "ensign", as they were called, although they should be better described as the "house flags". The first of these was introduced together with the corresponding party flag in December 2011. It was derived from either the national flag or the yacht ensign, by replacing the charges in the canton with a white disc, charged with the blue "Battle Cross" within the red ring. It was officially described as the "CFPA naval jack".

CFPA Naval flag image by Tomislav Todorovic, 9 September 2013

The second naval flag was probably introduced together with the new party flag in 2003, although it did not appear on the Web until October 2005, to be designated as the "naval ensign or yacht flag" only in December same year. Its canton was charged with a white crutch-cross with a double fimbriation in blue and white. This flag was removed from the party website in 2007, but reappeared next year, so it was probably not withdrawn from the use in the meantime and must have been used until the party was disbanded.

CFPA Security Service Flags

CFPA Security Service flag image by Tomislav Todorovic, 9 September 2013

The original flag of Falangist Security and Intelligence (FSI) has appeared in December 2011 as the part of the whole range of flags introduced. It was red, charged with a blue "Battle Cross" with white fimbriations. The introduction of the official abbreviation FALSEC (for "Falangist Security") in mid-2002 was not immediately followed by the flag change, which occured later same year.

FSEC flag image by Tomislav Todorovic, 9 September 2013

The new flag was charged with two addorsed letters "F" in red, fimbriated white and shaped so as to resemble the monkey wrench, on black field with a white fimbriation all around.

FSEC flag image by Tomislav Todorovic, 9 September 2013

he last flag of the FALSEC, which was now fully styled "Falange Security, Research and Intelligence", was probably introduced together with the second party flag, although it was not presented on the Web until mid-2004, and remained in use until the party was disbanded. It replaced the blue cructh-cross with the inscription FALSEC, placed over a thunderbolt so as to partly cover it, all in blue. The points of the thunderbolt were partly set over the red ring and separated by a white fimbriation from it. The flag was also shown at the website in vertical variant, the image of horizontal variant having been linked to the page, but it is to be verified Whether both variants were indeed used.

Christian Forces

Christian Forces flag image by Tomislav Todorovic, 9 September 2013

After the "Battle Cross" had been removed from other party flags, it reappeared in 2005, in a more pointed form and painted in red, on white flag of the Christian Forces, a would-be militia or social organization which seems to never have been really operative (making it difficult to decide about their real nature), although an address was reserved for their planned website which never appeared, only their flag having been regularly presented along with the party flags, also in vertical variant, whose existence is as questionable as that of other alleged vertical flags.

Christian Forces Variant flag image by Tomislav Todorovic, 9 September 2013

There might have been a similar flag with the original form of the cross, in the original flag range which was introduced in December 2001, but its image was replaced with that of the cross as a stand-alone emblem in October 2002 and was not presented ever since, so its existence remains questionable as well as its purpose, since there was no mention of the Christian Forces at the time. The original form of the cross was kept in use even after the flag change of 2003, throughout the year 2004, to be changed when the Christian Forces and their flag were presented.

CFPA state chapters flags

Four state chapters of CFPA have had their own flags, derived from the state flags by replacing the state seals with the crutch-cross and ring from the official party flag. They have appeared on the Web in December 2005 and were presented at the website as long as the party existed.

Florida Chapter Flag

CFPA FL image by Tomislav Todorovic, 10 September 2013

Derived from the state flag by replacing the state seal with blue crutch-cross within a red ring, all separated from red saltire with a white border; name FLORIDA inscribed in gold over the side arms of the cross.

Kansas Chapter Flag

CFPA KS image by Tomislav Todorovic, 10 September 2013

Here, only the beaded border of the state seal was kept and all other charges replaced by a white disc, charged with blue crutch-cross within a red ring. State crest and name were left unchanged.

North Carolina Chapter Flag

CFPA NC image by Tomislav Todorovic, 10 September 2013,
derived from the image from Wikipedia

Large white disc charged with blue crutch-cross and red ring was placed in center of blue field, while the white star and golden letters NC, which occupied its place on the state flag, were resized to fit onto the horizontal bar of the cross.

Washington Chapter Flag

CFPA Washington image by Tomislav Todorovic, 10 September 2013

Derived from the state flag by covering most of the state seal - leaving only black fimbriation and outer edge of golden ring - with a white disc, bordered red and charged with a black crutch-cross; name WASHINGTON inscribed in gold over the side arms of the cross.

Christian Zionists of America

CZOA flag image by Tomislav Todorovic, 09 September 2013

Christian Zionists of America (CZOA) was the name of an organization founded by the CFPA in 2004 with the aim of promoting the cause of Israel in the USA. Its flag was derived from that of Israel by replacing the Magen David by blue crutch-cross (erroneously called "Cross of Jerusalem"). The website of CZOA has survived until early 2012, but it is not clear if it has outlived the organization itself, nor when the CZOA ceased to exist (might have outlived the CFPA, but it doesn't seem much possible).

As long as the website existed, the flag image shown on its presentation page has differed from another image linked to it, one having visibly darker shade of blue that on the Israeli flag and the other having visibly lighter shade. Since these images differed greatly from each other as well as from the Israeli flag, and the flag was described as employing the national colors of Israel, it is shown here with the same shade of blue as used on the Israeli national flag.

Christian Zionist Roman Catholics

CZRC flag image by Tomislav Todorovic, 09 September 2013

The organization with the same goal as the Christian Zionists of America, but targetting a more specified population, Christian Zionist Roman Catholics (CZRC) were actually never founded, although the homepage for their future site did appear on the Web, showing a flag similar to that of the Christian Zionists of America, but with a Jerusalem Cross instead of the crutch-cross.
