Flag Papal Vatican Nylon Outdoor 3\' x 5\'

The Papal Vatican flag was modeled on an earlier version from 1808 during the Papal States days.  The current flag was adopted on June 7, 1929 when Pope Pius XI signed the Lateran Treaty with Italy creating a new independent state governed by the Holy See.

The flag consists of two vertical bands, one of gold or yellow and one of white with the crossed keys of Saint Peter and the Papal Tiara on the white band. The crossed keys consist of a golden and a silver key, in which the silver key is placed in the right position.

The tiara was used by Pope Pius XI.  The two keys represent the Keys of Heaven (according to the Gospel of Matthew 16:19) given by Jesus Christ to Saint Peter. The popes are regarded as the successor of Peter, and the gold and silver keys have been significant elements in the symbolism of the Holy See since the 13th century. The gold represents spiritual power, while the silver key represents worldly power. The order of the keys on the coat of arms of Vatican City is the reverse of the coat of arms of the Holy See, in order to distinguish between the two entities.

These outdoor religious flags utilize the latest in sewing and digital printing technology to replicate the Papal Vatican flag onto a 100% heavyweight nylon material that's durable and fast-drying.  Each flag is professionally sewn and finished with strong canvas heading with brass grommets.
