Graphics Library | Cross and Flame

The General Council on Finance and Administration (GCFA) is authorized by General Conference to supervise the use of the Cross and Flame. Questions have arisen as to how it may be used on the Internet.

The relevant provisions of the Book of Discipline provide that the Cross and Flame may be used by official United Methodist agencies, including local churches, to identify United Methodist work, programs and materials.

When official United Methodist agencies and local churches want to use the Cross and Flame on the Internet, there are several protocols to be followed:

1. Please put the registration mark, ®, below the Cross and Flame, preferably to the right of the cross.

2. On your Web page, as close as possible to the Cross and Flame, print the following:

The Cross and Flame is a registered trademark and the use is supervised by the General Council on Finance and Administration of The United Methodist Church. Permission to use the Cross and Flame must be obtained from the General Council on Finance and Administration of The United Methodist Church:
