3rd National Confederate States of America Flag




The 3rd National was adopted by Congress on March 8, 1865. Flag dimensions were changed and a red band was sewn across the end of the fly. Almost all 3rd national flags in existence are simply 2nd national flags that were modified to appear as 3rd nationals. Therefore the union (battle flag in corner) was square and not rectangular as prescribed by law. I make them with a square union to match those in existence.


"Unlike the existing War period flags of the earlier patterns, there are very few survivors of the 1865 version as prescribed by law. Of the 3rd Nationals which do exist, most are the 1863 flag with the fly shortened and a red bar added."  The Flags of the Confederacy by Devereaux D. Cannon, Jr. St. Lukes Press & Broadfoot Publishing, 1988

100% durable pre-washed cotton fabric that flies well and the colors do not run. The hoist (that part nearest the staff) is sturdy cotton canvas - whipped eyelets and/or ties - components are sewn, not printed on the fabric. This flag is handmade by me - not mass produced and feels and looks like an original. Consequently it cost more than "sewn component" flags which are "factory" made.
