New flag

[ NZ All Blacks ] image located by John Moody, 11 October 2020

Please find scan featuring Crusaders waving the new Crusaders Rugby Team supporters flag at Orangetheory Stadium Christchurch.

This image was featured on the front page of the Press Christchurch Monday 29th 2020. This flag replaced the previous supporters flag featuring a Crusader Soldier with a sword. This flag was considered offensive to the local Muslim community after the March 2019 killings of members of this community by a white extremist gunman. The Flag now features a Maori motif but the team name retained the crusaders name.

Earlier flags

Each of these [Super12, now Super14] sides has an official flag which is a fairly horrible pattern formed from the team colours with the team's logo superimposed on it.

The Crusaders (based in Christchurch) have a red flag with a black and white image of the upper torso of a mediaeval knight brandishing a sword.
