Anglican Province of Tanzania

The Rev. Canon R. Mwitha Akiri, PhD, General Secretary of the Anglican Province of Tanzania, has informed me that the Church uses the National Flag of Tanzania as its Ecclesiastical flag, and that it is flown in the cathedral and in all diocesan cathedrals; it is also carried in ecclesiastical processions immediately behind the Archiepiscopal or Episcopal Crosier and ahead of the Archiepiscopal or Episcopal Staff when carried by someone other than the Archbishop or Bishop.  The Province itself has a Coat of Arms, as do most, but not all, of the dioceses. There are no plans to create either a Provincial flag or a diocesan flags; this is largely because Anglicanism is a minority faith within Tanzania.
