Banner of an
NCAY Local Branch
Local NCAY Branch Banner since 2017
The Local Branch Banner, newly designed in March 2017, is identical to that of the Local Mission Banner save for the presence of a Lion logo in the centre of the horiztontal tricolour of black, white and blue in the upper hoist. It replaced the old Local Branch Banner which was discontinued in 2009. Between 2009 and 2017 Local Branches used the same banner as the Local Mission.
This old Branch Banner first came into use on 15 October 1995 in Bergen, Norway, during a special banner consecration ceremony. Fully organised Local Assemblies then used, as now, the basic pattern of the Local Dependent Mission Banner but with the now discontinued Melchizedek Logo in the centre of the cross, use of which was discontinued in 2009. Old Central or Metropolitan Assembly Banners also used the format of the old Branch Banner but included a Firstborn Cross in the upper hoist.
Old Branch Banner (1995-2009)
In 1996 a design to replace the NCCF banners was suggested, consisting of a dark blue background, a firstborn tricolour in the upper hoist, and a priesthood logo in the lower right quadrant. Though briefly adopted in 1996 it was never very popular and the original NCCF banner, together with a priesthood logo, eventually became the established banner of the Local Assemblies until 2009. The original concept was, however, taken and adapted in the formation of the new Central Assembly Banner.
