Confederate 3rd National Flag

This flag was also known as "the
Blood Stained Banner" and was adopted on March 4, 1865. The red vertical bar was proposed by Major Arthur L. Rogers, who argued that the pure white field of the Second National flag could be mistaken as a flag of truce: when hanging limp in no wind, the flag's Southern Cross canton could accidentally stay hidden, so the flag could mistakenly appear all white.

Rogers lobbied successfully to have this alteration introduced in the Confederate Senate. He defended his redesign as having "as little as possible of the Yankee blue", and described it as symbolizing the primary origins of the people of the South, with the cross of England and the red bar from the flag of France.

This flag flew for 36 days over the Confederacy in 1865 until the surrender on April 9th.

Polyester. Approximately 3ft x 5ft
