    if their secular or not but I've never known them to try and convert anyone.  That makes them secular in my book no matter how christian their intentions are.

      I've worked with my local red cross folks, and, trust me, as an organization they are about as neutral as it gets (I, OTOH, was volunteering for a catholic organization back then). Their sysmbol is a reverse image of the Swiss flag, because the Red Cross movement is of Swiss origin. Of course this comes from the background of a christian culture and nation, but it is neither religious in nature nor affiliated with any church.
