The history of the United Methodist flag is directly correlated with the creation of the official United Methodist Insignia. In 1968 Edward J. Mikula was asked to create a symbol that would stand proudly for the United Methodist Church. Mikula wanted the insignia to somehow incorporate the warmth John Wesley, Methodist leader, had discussed in how he discovered his faith. About 24 different designs were created and the chosen one offered a cross and a single dual flame. The flame was used to signify the idea of the warmth and the duality of it was to attribute the merger of the United Methodist Church with the Evangelical United Brethren Church in 1968. The cross and the dual flame are also noted to represent Christ and the Holy Spirit. Two versions of the original design were done, one offering just the symbol and the other offering the symbol and the words "The United Methodist Church." If the words are used they must all be capitalized and must encompass both horizontal and vertical elements. The United Methodist flag offers a pure and completely white background with the Insignia including the words centered on the field. The exact date that the official Insignia was place on a flag is not officially known. The Insignia, however, was registered by trademark in 1971.
