Flags of Dixie
A place where you can learn history and buy flags
The Confederate Flag

I was born in the Land of Cotton where chivalry, hard work and honor reigned supreme. With loving care I was sewn together with colors of blood red, pure white and sky blue. When Confederate guns thundered over Fort Sumter to answer the call of freedom, I rose with pride by the hands that answered that call.

Since that time, my tribulations have been many. Brave Southern men, opposing the forces of tyranny, carried me forth on the fields of Shiloh, Gettysburg, Antietam, Kennesaw Mountain and Franklin. There they shed their blood in defense of my honor. I will never forget the horrors they endured. I witnessed their tears as they furled me during the so called peace at Appomattox.

As long as there breathes a Southern soul to carry me, I will continue to symbolize that cause they so nobly fought for. Let not any foe who opposes me doubt that conviction.

I am the Confederate Flag and I will always stand for Dixie!

Confederate Naval Jack
a.k.a. The Confederate Flag

The best-known of all Confederate flags, the Confederate Naval Jack, is often erroneously referred to as the "Stars and Bars," a flag of an entirely different design. The battle flag features the cross of St. Andrew (the apostle was martyred by being crucified on an X-shaped cross), and is commonly called the "Southern Cross." A large degree of the Southern population was of Scottish and Scotch-Irish ancestry, and thus familiar with St. Andrew, the patron saint of Scotland. The stars represented the eleven states actually in the Confederacy, plus Kentucky and Missouri.

The Army of Northern Virginia was the first to design a flag with the cross of St. Andrew, and Gen. P. G. T. Beauregard proposed adopting a version of it as the standard battle flag of the Confederate army. One of its virtues was that, unlike the Stars and Bars, the Southern Cross was next to impossible to confuse with the Stars and Stripes of the Union in battle.

The Confederate battle flag eventually developed wide acceptance throughout the Confederacy, but it was by no means the only battle flag. The Stars and Bars continued to be used, and after it was replaced with a new national flag, that flag, the "Stainless Banner," also appeared on the battlefield. In addition, some states used their own flags in combat.

The Confederate battle flag, called the "Southern Cross" or the cross of St. Andrew, has been described variously as a proud emblem of Southern heritage. In the past, several Southern states flew the Confederate battle flag along with the U.S. and state flags over their statehouses. This website provides information on how you can promote our southern heritage.

The Congress of the Confederate States of America (CSA) convened a meeting and decided on the "Stars and Bars" as the first formal flag of the CSA in March of 1861. It was a slight modification of the already existing flag of the USA. It was formally known as the Stars and Bars, and comprised 3 stripes in this order: red, white, red. On the upper left corner was a deep blue square which had a circle of 7 stars in it. The design of the Stars and Bars, however, was soon rejected due to some problems that it posed. During the battle in Virginia, between Manassas and Bull Run Creek, this design caused a lot of serious confusion. Because it bore a striking resemblance to the flag of the U.S. (stars and stripes), soldiers from the North and the South were often confused about who belonged to which part. This mistake resulted in the death of many soldiers and hence it was decided to alter the design of the flag, a lesson in history.

This is the flag that the Confederate soldiers fought under. It was used on the many battlefields they fought on. This version of our flag is the one that is currently flying on the South Carolina statehouse grounds and is under attack by pc leftists for removal.

First National Confederate Flag
a.k.a. The "Stars and Bars"

The first official flag of the Confederacy, called the "Stars and Bars," was flown from March 5, 1861, to May 26, 1863.

The very first national flag of the Confederacy was designed by Prussian artist Nicola Marschall in Marion, Alabama. The Stars and Bars flag was adopted March 4, 1861 in Montgomery, Alabama and raised over the dome of that first Confederate Capitol. Marschall also designed the Confederate uniform.

One of the first acts of the Provisional Confederate Congress was to create the Committee on the Flag and Seal, chaired by William Porcher Miles of South Carolina. The committee asked the public to submit thoughts and ideas on the topic and was, as historian John M. Coski puts it, "overwhelmed by requests not to abandon the 'old flag' of the United States." Miles had already designed a flag that would later become the Confederate battle flag, and he favored his flag over the "Stars and Bars" proposal. But given the popular support for a flag similar to the U.S. flag ("the Stars and Stripes"), the Stars and Bars design was approved by the committee. When war broke out, the Stars and Bars caused confusion on the battlefield because of its similarity to the U.S. flag of the U.S. Army.

Eventually, a total of thirteen stars would be shown on the flag, reflecting the Confederacy's claims to have admitted Kentucky and Missouri into their union. The first public appearance of the 13-star flag was outside the Ben Johnson House in Bardstown, Kentucky. The 13-star design was also used as the basis of a naval ensign.

Second National Confederate Flag
a.k.a. The "Stainless Banner"

In May of 1863, the First National Confederate Flag was replaced by the Second National, a design that radically altered the design of the First National. It was the first National Confederate flag which showed the St. Andrews cross of stars in the canton. The reason for this change in design was that the First National resembled too much the Stars and Stripes of the Union flag on the field of battle, a fact which caused much confusion in the heat of battle. Also, many Confederates had become disenchanted with a design that reminded them too much of the Union that they we seeking their independence from.

After Stonewall Jackson's death, the Second National Flag of the Confederacy became much endeared to Southerners as it was the flag that was used to drape Jackson's coffin with.

Third National Confederate Flag

Evidently Confederates were a hard lot to please when it came to flag designs. Late in the War for Southern Independence the Second National Confederate Flag developed a peculiar problem. Due to its almost all white color, it resembled the flag of truce whenever winds were light and it hung limp. So a new design was put into use by simply adding a verticle red bar at the fly end of the Second National. This new design went into effect in March of 1865. The war ended a month later with Lee's surrender of the Army of Northern Virginia to Grant at Appamattox. But since Jefferson Davis never surrendered the Confederate government, the Third National Confederate Flag remains the official flag of the Confederate government to this day.

The Bonnie Blue Flag

The Bonnie Blue Flag was the flag of the short-lived Republic of West Florida of 1810 and closely resembles the flag that was used as the banner of the Confederate States of America at the start of the American Civil War in 1861. It consists of a single, five- pointed white star on a blue field.

The 1956 REAL Georgia Flag

WHY GEORGIA NEEDS TO REINSTATE ITS 1956 STATE FLAG
by Frank Conner

In 1956, the Georgia legislature voted to adopt a new state flag which featured the Confederate battle-flag prominently in its design--as a part of the nationwide preparations for the Civil War Centennial program proclaimed by President Eisenhower. Those legislators adopted that flag to commemorate the brave fight the Confederates had made in defense of their homes and families during the War of Northern Aggression. And even as late as 1992 , the super-liberal "Atlanta Journal-Constitution"--after a lengthy search to try to attribute darker motives to that 1956 vote--admitted the truth of that in its 7/5/92 issue. But now the battle flag has taken on a far-more-important role, so now most of the Georgia news-media are making the blanket accusation that the 1956 legislature adopted that flag to try to spite the black-civil-rights movement. What brought about this major change in the viewpoint of the liberals/black-activists?

In 2001, at the behest of big business in Atlanta and the black activists, Georgia Governor Roy Barnes--with no forewarning to the general public--cut a series of sneaky backroom-deals with the state legislators (supposedly involving large amounts of pork) to replace the 1956 flag with a new flag which shrinks the battle-flag down to a tiny, unnoticeable element; and they voted on the new flag and presented it to the public as a fait accompli. The Georgia public did not like that move; and a number of activists, consisting of members of the SCV, Southern Party of Georgia, LoS, Project Wave and other Southern-patriot organizations, showed up at the reelection-campaign events held by Barnes & Co., wielding 1956 flags, signs, colorful props, and bullhorns. This got considerable play in the media; and both the media and the politicians believe that these "flaggings" played an important role in the defeat of Barnes & Co.

In 1956, the battle flag represented the timeless Southern beliefs by which most Georgians still lived, such as: the belief in real freedom of speech--and not in harsh censorship via political correctness; the belief in a moral society governed by Christian values, as clearly intended by our Founding Fathers--and not in the anything-goes barbarity of today; the belief in free enterprise, which rewards individual initiative--and not in big-government socialism, which attempts disastrously to impose social and economic equality upon all; and the belief that government exists to serve the people--and not vice versa. Because most Georgians still lived by this set of beliefs in 1956 anyway, it was not necessary to emphasize back then that these beliefs are specifically what the battle flag stands for, because they are the beliefs which the Confederates fought and died to preserve.

But now this Southern belief-system is under concerted attack by the ideological liberals (secular humanists), who are systematically destroying the Southern way of life and gradually imposing atheistic socialism upon us, under the guise of preserving black civil-rights. The New-South people in Atlanta are leading this sustained attack in our state, and they are fully supported by the (liberal) news-media, big business, the black activists, and most of the state politicians. Their principal weapon against us is their invented charge of "racism."

The line in the sand has been drawn by both sides--the liberals and the conservatives--with the Confederate battle-flag positioned in the middle. Both sides recognize clearly that the battle flag is the only symbol which represents the Southern belief-system and way of life. And in Georgia, the battle flag is represented by our 1956 state flag. (All other Confederate flags and symbols are meaningless in this fight.) And that is why all of the formidable enemies of the traditional white Southerners are attacking that flag no-holds-barred, using every lie and distortion and underhanded trick in their arsenal to disparage that flag and defeat its reinstatement.

The black activists are supporting the liberals fully by attacking our way of life and our flag, even though it was under the 1956 state flag with the prominent battle-flag emblem that the blacks in Georgia made far-greater social and economic gains than under any other state flag during the 20th century. It was under the 1956 flag that the blacks gained their full civil-rights in Georgia, so in reality, they have every reason to approve of that flag. In addition, big business in Georgia is attacking our way of life and our flag all-out, because the CEOs are careful to be politically correct, because they think their companies can make more money more easily that way. The liberal media have been attacking our way of life and our flag all along, because they hate our conservative Southern belief-system. And most state politicians are attacking our way of life and our flag, because they pay close attention to what big business, the black activists, and the liberal media want--and not what the people of Georgia want.

It is now the position of the white liberals and the black activists--in the public climate of political correctness which they maintain today--that even though the traditional white Southerners have cooperated fully with the blacks in officially recognizing and celebrating the heritage and culture of the black-civil-rights movement, the heritage and culture of the white Southerners must not be permitted to stand alongside that of the blacks. Instead, the heritage and culture of the white Southerners must be demonized and suppressed; and the media, the education establishment, and government in the South are all cooperating toward that end. And therefore, they insist, the 1956 flag must not be reinstated. Their argument is that it will offend some blacks, and that cannot be permitted, even though the liberals/black activists insist that it is perfectly acceptable for them to attack, insult, and offend the whites every day of the week.

As long as the 1956 state flag with the prominent battle-flag emblem flies officially in public, then the real Southerners in Georgia can live serene and tranquil lives, secure in the knowledge that enough other Georgians still believe as they do to block the liberals from finishing the job of turning Georgia into New-York South.


The Mississippi State Flag

3' x 5' polyester - $12.00 - Out of stock

The Mississippi State Flag

The flag of the State of Mississippi was first adopted by the U.S. state of Mississippi in April 1894, replacing the flag that had been adopted in 1861. The flag was subsequently repealed in 1906 and readopted in April 2001. The flag is unique among U.S. state flags as it is the sole remaining U.S. state flag which still depicts the Confederate battle flag's saltire.

The pledge to the Mississippi state flag is:

I salute the flag of Mississippi and the sovereign state for which it stands with pride in her history and achievements and with confidence in her future under the guidance of Almighty God.
      —Mississippi Code Ann., Section 37-13-7, 1972

The statute is part of the set of state statutes that governs the curriculum of the state's public schools. Section 37-13-7 provides: "The pledge of allegiance to the Mississippi flag shall be taught in the public schools of this state, along with the pledge of allegiance to the United States flag."

Betsy Ross Flag of 1176

The Betsy Ross flag is an early design of the flag of the United States, popularly — but very likely incorrectly — attributed to Betsy Ross, using the common motifs of alternating red- and-white striped field with five-pointed stars in a blue canton. The flag was designed during the American Revolution and features 13 stars to represent the original 13 colonies. The distinctive feature of the Ross flag is the arrangement of the stars in a circle.


Old Glory

Old Glory
The 50-Star U.S. Flag

Being the flag of the army who opposed our Confederate ancestors, the 50-Star U.S. flag gets a bad rap from a lot of Southerners. But as the attacks on our Southern heritage expands to include all things American, it is beginning to be flown along side the St. Andrews Cross of Stars a lot. So, make no mistake about it, when the heritage haters get finished with the Confederate Flag, they will be coming after Old Glory as well. They are bent on destroying the America that we once knew.


In these troubled days we live in, "Old Glory" is being flown a lot along side our Confederate flags in large motorized rallies such as this one that recently took place in Calhoun, Georgia.
