The first official flag of the Confederacy was The Stars and Bars, which was flown from 5 March 1861 to 26 May 1863. When war broke out, the Stars and Bars caused confusion on the battlefield because it was so similar to the Stars and Stripes of the Union forces. Eventually, a total of thirteen stars would be shown on the flag. Its first public appearance was outside the Ben Johnson House in Bardstown, Kentucky.
One of the flags of the Confederacy, the First National Confederate Stars & Bars Flag is a popular favorite and is offered in nylon or cotton. Each flag is finished with a white canvas heading and brass grommets.
Please Note: We recommend bringing cotton flags indoors before inclement weather hits to avoid color bleeding. The cotton flag uses larger grommets so we recommend the use of our Never Furls for hanging with your 1 in. diameter flagpole.
