Here's the story of this flag:

The Flag of the Sacred Heart, or Carillon Flag (in French Drapeau Carillon Sacré Coeur), is a Catholic flag dating back to the 1600s. It was used by French Canadians in Quebec, and gets its name for being their standard in the 1758 Battle of Carillon, in which they decisively defeated an overwhelmingly superior British force.

The fleurs-de-lis in the corners are an old French symbol representing the Trinity; and the large white cross, sort of invisible as a design element separating the blue fields, is at root of course the Cross of Christ. The white cross in a blue field was the design of the French merchant flag, which this flag is based on. It is also the model for the Quebec flag, the white cross in a blue field with the fleurs-de-lis in the corners. The Sacred Heart flag was used widely by Canadian Catholics at an official level until the 1950s.

We show an illustration of John the Baptist with this flag as his standard (not included with order). This flag is a beautiful Catholic symbol. It looks good on walls, but it also serves as something of a Catholic rallying point, a reminder that we are workers in the cause of Christ, who has our highest allegiance. To be sure, the enemy is Satan, not other people, genders, political parties, or race. (source:
