3ft x 5ft Second National Flag
Flags International is proud to offer this high quality 3ft x 5ft Second National Flag. The “Stars and Bars” was too closely allied to the Stars and stripes to be acceptable to those who favored a complete severance of ties with the Union. As the war wore on the demand for a modification of the National emblem which would make it more distinctive, became more insistent. In May, 1863 the Confederate Congress at Richmond acceded to the demands. They placed the famous Battle Flag of the Confederacy which had been transformed from an oblong into a square emblem in the union, and substituted a white field for the red and white bars. Thus the “Stars and Bars’, under which so many Southern lives had been sacrificed, passed into the discard. This new flag weathered the storm for less than a year before it too was modified. Historical U.S. Flags sold by Flags International are Made in the USA. This 3′ x 5′ Second Confederate flag can be flown on a wall-mounted flagpole set or on an in-ground flagpole.
