This is a CONFEDERATE 2ND NATIONAL FLAG. It is NEW. This flag was also known as the Stainless Flag because of the white background which represented the Purity of the Cause. One of the first official uses of this flag was to drape the coffin of General Stonewall Jackson as his body lay in state in the Confederate House of Representatives. The 2nd National flag was adopted in 1863. It is COMPLETELY SEWN. It is NOT PRINTED. This Flag is made from 100% COTTON. It has a Cotton Canvas Header and Brass Grommets. The Flag Size is 12 Inches by 18 Inches. This Flag is BRAND NEW and NEVER USED. It is Excellent Quality and is Correct in All Details. Our Flags are COMPLETELY SEWN as were the Originals. We DO NOT Iron On, Stencil or Glue on Flag Components as some others do. Beware of Cheap Imitations claiming to be sewn. This is a Great Flag for Reenactors or any Civil War History Buff. This Flag Size is Great For Framing or Shadow Boxes. It makes a Great Gift.
