The Bottony (Calvert) red and white cross was a powerful symbol of Confederate sympathy in Maryland during and after the Civil War. Confederate Marylander regiments often wore the cross on their lapels and incorporated it into their unit flags. The red and white colors became so closely associated with the rebellion that federal authorities garrisoned at Baltimore in early-1861 outlawed displaying them in the city, a hotbed of Southern sympathizers. Offenders were jailed.
