Each time you see the cross and flame emblem, you are looking at United Methodism's official symbol.
Known informally as the cross and flame logo but formally known as the denomination's insignia, it has been in use nearly three decades. It is seen in cities, towns and rural areas at every point on the globe.
The insignia is a cross linked with a dual flame. This symbol relates our church to God by way of the second and third persons of the Trinity; the Christ (cross) and the Holy Spirit (flame).
Apart from Wesleyan Trinitarian theology and warmth, the flame has two other connotations. The flame suggests Pentecost when witnesses saw "tongues as of fire." And the duality of the flame was meant to represent the merger in 1968 of two denominations: The Methodist Church and the Evangelical United Brethren Church.
This distinctive design incorporating the flame of the Holy Spirit and the cross of Christ was adopted in 1968 as the official symbol of the United Methodist Church. It was created by E.J. Mikula and E.H. Maynard.
Engraving on Crosses
Many ask about engraving on crosses. This particular cross is XR102 from
this page, and is a flat cross.
Most gold crosses are not flat across the back, and are therefore not suitable for engraving on the back. Additionally, the manufacturer will often put a makers mark on the back side of the cross. Hollow crosses are solid gold but hollow in the middle and therefore not suitable for engraving. Very detailed crosses and crucifixes will most likely have detailed backs as well. However, a flat cross can be engraved directly on the front.
