3ft x 3ft Confederate Field Artillery Flag
Flags International is proud to offer this high quality 3ft x 3ft Confederate Field Artillery Flag. Often referred to as The battle flag of the Confederacy it was the design that was the basis of more than 180 separate Confederate military battle flags.[citation needed. The Army of Northern Virginia battle flag was usually square, of various sizes for the different branches of the service: 52 inches square for the infantry, 38 inches for the artillery, and 32 inches for the cavalry. It was used in battle beginning in December 1861 until the fall of the Confederacy. The blue color on the saltire in the battle flag was navy blue, as opposed to the much lighter blue of the Naval Jack. The flag’s stars represented the number of states in the Confederacy. The distance between the stars decreased as the number of states increased, reaching thirteen when the secessionist factions of Kentucky and Missouri joined in late 1861
