    What is called the Confederate flag, this flag:


    Never flew over any nation ever.

    It flew over CBS carport ranchettes and pickup trucks that I can tell.

    Oh, yeah and behind a few southern rock bands as well.:wink

    This is my exact quote:

    "The Confederate flag flew over a slave nation from 1861 to 1865. 4, maybe 5 years total."

    What I said was the truth, but I did NOT specifically say which flag that was. You have made an assumption I was talking about a specific flag...

    Here are some of the Confederate flags:

    Can you see the mocking glance he is giving the losers'flag?

    You assign a "look" from a profile shot, how perceptive of you. Your Cultural Marxism is showing, you need to pull your skirt down.

    Are you aware the CSA never surrendered and many of us never will. With the Cultural Marxism taking place here it proves the South was right.

    It looks like JFK just arrived in the South and that person is unrolling the flag soon to be mounted on JFK's car to communicate to Southerners he is among us as a 'friendly' yankee:

    "South Carolina Governor Ernest “Fritz” Hollings presents President John F. Kennedy with a Confederate flag (1961)

    And JFK was not the only one...

    Its also the pick'em up truck jack.

    The naval Jack had much lighter blue the The Army of Northern Virginia Battle Flag. The flag seen most commonly is not the Naval Jack.

    The Army of Northern Virginia battle flag was square, of various sizes for the different branches of the service: 52 inches (130 cm) square for the infantry, 38 inches (97 cm) for the artillery, and 32 inches (81 cm) for the cavalry. Its design was derived from the previous Naval Jack of the Confederacy, which was rectangular. It was used in battle beginning in December 1861 until the fall of the Confederacy. The blue on the saltire in the battle flag was navy blue, as opposed to the much lighter blue of the Naval Jack.

    This flag was used by the soldiers of the Army as the de facto official flag was too similar to the Union's flag. To avoid confusion on the battlefield, this flag was used consistently by almost the entire army.

    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.[26]

    I especially like the story of Davis trying to escape capture by dressing as an old woman.

    What say you liberals?

    You don't need to be attached to any political party to honor the dead Confederate Soldiers.

    You don't need any flag to do that either.
    Maybe if we tell people that the brain is an App, they will start using it.

    Why did you post the reference. It agrees with what I said.

    Since the topic was about a certain flag, the natural assumption is you were speaking of that flag, but you can backpedal away from it if you wish.

    The flag most copied for modern use is a close copy of the battle flag of the Army of Tennessee. There were several variants of the battle flag.
