Stars and Bars

The Confederacy in the American Civil War had a number of flags. The most famous one is often thought to be the Confederate flag, and is often flown today by supremacists and others. This is the flag with a St. Andrew’s Cross (X-shaped) bordered by a thin white line on a red field. Inside the bars of the cross are thirteen white stars on blue, which represent the eleven Confederate states plus Kentucky and Missouri. This was the Confederate battle flag, not the national flag. The first national flag had three broad horizontal stripes of red, white and red, with a blue field in the upper left, featuring a circle of stars. This is the flag first called the “Stars and Bars,” although the name is also used for the battle flag. This too closely resembled the U.S. flag for many rebels, so a new flag was designed. This new flag featured the Confederate battle flag in the upper left quadrant, with the rest of the flag being white. This could be taken as a flag of surrender if the flag went limp when there was no wind. The final Confederate national flag, adopted a few months before the surrender, added a wide vertical red stripe along the right edge.
