Anglican Communion

The Anglican Communion is the peak body of various Anglican and Episcopal churches around the world. The Communion has a flag, which is ultramarine blue, with a golden compass ('compass rose') bearing at its centre, a white shield with red borders carrying a red St George's cross surrounded by a Greek motto meaning 'The Truth Shall Make You Free', topped by a golden mitre. The 'compass rose' can be found in the official website of the Compass Rose Society..

Church of England

Church of England churches fly the defaced St George's cross. Cathedrals tend to fly a banner of arms of the diocese. The Archbishop of Canterbury(Protestant Metropolitan) and the Cardinal Archbishop of Westminster (Catholic Metropolitan) both have flags for their office which are almost identical apart from the background colour.
