Flag Confederate

From 1861 to 1865, when it was founded, it was designed three times in a row and became the official flag of the United States allies ("allies" or "allies").

Since the end of the civil war in the United States, under the philosophical, political, cultural and ethnic disputes in the United States, the flag of the Confederacy and the private and official use of the flag with derivative designs have continued. These include flags displayed in the status. Towns, counties; schools, colleges and universities; private organizations and associations; and individuals.

Mississippi State flag has an allied flag in the state or upper left corner, the only state flag in the United States to do so. The State Flag of Georgia is very similar to the first federal flag, the Star Spangled Banner. From 1956 to 2001, the previous design using the Confederate flag was used.

The first official flag of the Federation is the Star Spangled Banner, which is usually flown from March 4, 1861 to May 1, 1863. It was designed by German / Prussian artist Nicola Marschall in Marion, Alabama, similar to the Austrian flag, which Marschall will be familiar with. The Star Spangled Banner was adopted on March 4, 1861 in the first temporary national capital of Montgomery, Alabama, and raised on the dome of the Union's first Capitol. Marshall also designed Confederate uniforms.

A monument in Louisburg, N.C., called the star bar, was designed by North Carolina's son, Oren Randolph Smith, and was made by Katherine Rebecca (Murphy) Winborn under his guidance. /Forwarded to Montgomery, Alabama. 12 February 1861, / adopted by the provisional parliament on 4 March 1861. "

One of the first bills in the provisional alliance Congress was the creation of a flag committee chaired by South Carolina congressman and fire eater William porcher miles. As historian John M. Coski put it, "the Commission is at a loss not to give up the old American flag.". Miles has designed a flag, later known as the alliance flag, and prefers his own flag to the Star Spangled Banner proposal. However, the design of the "Star Spangled Banner" was approved by the committee because of general support for a flag similar to the American flag ("Star Spangled Banner" - originally established and designed during the revolutionary war in June 1777).

When the American Civil War broke out, the "Star Spangled Banner" caused confusion on the battlefield in the first bull running battle, because it was similar to the American flag, especially when it hung weakly on the flagpole. For ideological reasons, the Star Spangled Banner is similar to the American flag. Many allies did not like star bar as a symbol of the alliance's secession from centralism in order to maintain slavery. As early as April 1861, a month after the flag was adopted, some people began to criticize the flag, calling it "slavery imitation" and "disgusting imitation" of the American flag. In January 1862, George William Bagby wrote for the Southern Literary Messenger, writing that many allies did not like the flag. "Everyone wants a new Confederate flag," Barbie wrote "The current moves are generally annoying. It's like the Yankees flag, enough to make it unbearable. " The editor of the Charleston mercury expressed a similar view: "it seems to be widely accepted that the star spangled banner will never serve us. They're too much like the disgraceful 'Yankee Dickie flag' We imagine that the 'battle' flag will be well received. William T. Thompson, editor of the Savannah based daily morning post, also opposed the flag because it was aesthetically similar to the American flag and, in some allies, negatively linked to liberation and abolitionism. Thompson said in April 1863 that he did not like the flag he used "because it is similar to the flag we oppose to abolish autocracy".

During the federal use of the flag, the state of the flag added additional stars, eventually bringing the total number of stars on the flag to 13. This reflects the confederation's claim that Kentucky and Missouri have been admitted to the Confederation. Although they represented the Federation during the conference and the shadow government consisted of former state politicians who were removed, neither state was under the full control or management of the Confederation. The first display of the 13 star logo was outside Ben Johnson's home in barstown, Kentucky; the 13 star design was also used as a combat lieutenant in the Allied Navy.
