Cote d' Ivoire 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: Côte d'Ivoire

The Church of the Nazarene officially entered Côte d'Ivoire in 1987.

Côte d'Ivoire had a population of 28,713,423 in 2022. That same year, Côte d'Ivoire reported 208 Churches of the Nazarene, 60 of which had been officially organized. Côte d'Ivoire has 20,067 total members. Côte d'Ivoire has one Phase 2 district and one Phase 1 district. It is a part of the Africa Region. For more information about the Africa Region, visit africanazarene.org.

* = 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.

Caption

The Cameroon flag is a vertical tricolor of green, red and yellow, defaced with a five-pointed star in its center. The center stripe is thought to stand for unity: red is the colour of unity, and the star is referred to as "the star of unity." The yellow stands for the sun and also the savannas in the northern part of the country, while the green is for the forests in the southern part of Cameroon.
