The official flag of the Greek Orthodox Church represents several churches within Eastern Orthodox Christianity. The double-headed eagle was the official state symbol of the Byzantine Empire, and dates from the 11th century.
The two heads of the eagle represent the dual sovereignity of the Byzantine Emperor, with the left head representing Rome in the West, and the right head representing Constantinople in the East. In its talons, the eagle grips an orb and a cross.
