3rd National Confederate Flag -Cotton 4 X 6 ft.
Used from 4 March 1865 until end of Civil War later in 1865. The 2nd flag of the Confederacy, with its white field, was too similar to a truce flag. Therefore a red bar was added to the end of the flag with few other changes. AKA The Blood Stained Banner.
Following the line of flags adopted for the new confederacy, this is the final version of the flag of the Confederate States of America in their secession/ rebellion against the Union.
