Flags for our Holy Work
The Banner of the Holy League of 1571
is our copyrighted historical reproduction of the original Ensign which flew on the Flag Ship of the Supreme Commander of the Holy League, Marcantonio Colonna, at the Battle of Lepanto, October 7, 1571 A.D.
This reproduction shows the Battle Flag of Lepanto designed by Pope Saint Pius V: with a Crucifix supported by the Shields of the members of the Holy League of 1571: King Philip of Spain, Saint Pius V, the Republic of Venice, and Don Juan of Austria, all united by the Chain of the Rosary. The Pattern symbolizes the Fleets of the Holy League in formation, and the woven border recalls the power of the Chain of the Most Holy Rosary of the Blessed Virgin Mary protecting all the ships and sailors.

Our Flag is based on the ancient flag of the Catholic Maritime Republic of Amalfi, which was the first to establish a network of hospitals around the Mediterranean for the care and provision of Catholics who traveled in the 9th and 10th centuries. Amalfi’s flag was a white Cross, like our own, on a blue field. Since our Order is dedicated to services on land, we have reversed the colors.
