The flag is based on the design of the Philippine national flag, having a white triangle with its base at the hoist, and a bi-color field, in this case gold and red. The church's seal is in the triangle. The seal on the flag has a gold eagle on top, clutching a white arching ribbon with red upper case letters reading "KABANALBANALANG".

Beneath the ribbon is a ring formed by a gold cord on the outer edge and a gold chain on the inner edge, voided white, with red upper case letters reading "IGLESIA NG DIOS" in the upper half and "KAY KRISTO HESUS" in the lower. Within the ring is a gold upright anchor on a background voided white.
