The Confederate Battle Flag of the Army of North Virginia, or more commonly known as the Confederate Flag, has a deep rich history that not many people know about. Along with selling Confederate Flags, we also take great pride in providing an accurate representation of rebel history. So brag your favorite sipping whiskey, and sit back because we’re not skipping a thing.
The Army of North Virginia
The Confederate Battle Flag became an iconic for Dixie thanks to the efforts of the Army of North Virginia and their leader, General Robert E. Lee. The army, which was routinely underfed, outgunned, and to the point of exhaustion, secured victory after victory for the Confederacy. They we’re the pride of Dixie and the scorn of the Union. The Yankee’s feared General Lee’s Army so much that the Confederacy ended up adopting their battle flag into the official national flag. It took the drunkard Ulysses Grant sending wave after wave of his own army to be mascaraed to finally corner Lee into a defensive position. The Confederate Battle Flag is the perfect example of rebel grit. Even against great odds we will always persevere.
The Design of the Confederate Battle Flag
The flag itself is a modification of the Navy Jack which was lighter blue. The Navy Jack was of coursed used by the Confederate Navy and a few blockade runners. Its thirteen stars represent the thirteen Confederate States. Not many know this, but the flag itself is shrouded in Christian symbolism which we discuss in greater detail here. In essence the Red was meant to represent the blood of Christ and through his protection our Christian ancestors fought for the preservation of liberty. The Confederate Battle Flag, like most battle flags at the time belonging to army units was much more square than rectangular.
As we mentioned before the Confederate Battle Flag is commonly mistaken as the flag for the Confederate States of America. This is simply not true. The Confederate States of America had three official flags with the later two adopting the Confederate Battle Flag into its general design. If you wish to read more about the Official Flags of the Confederate States of America you can read our quick summary at http://www.buyconfederateflag.org/history-behind-the-confederate-flags/ I plan on writing a more detailed review on each later on. So while the Battle Flag may not be an official flag, I would argue its significance to Southern culture and way of life is just as important. It represents our rebel cause and should be flown with pride.

The Blood Stained Banner was the last official flag of the Confederate States of America and one of the more easily recognizable Dixie flags. It was formally adopted on March 4, 1865 with one unique modification to its predecessor. The Blood Stained Banner contains one rectangular blood red stripe at the end.
How the Blood Stained Banner came to be
The red stripe modification was put forth by Major Arthur L. Rogers who argued that during the mist of battle the Second National Flag looked too much like a white flag of surrender. He took this argument to the Confederate Senate where he proposed that not only will the redesign cause less confusion on the battlefield, but that the less “Yankee Blue” the flag had the better. This of course in reference to the blue on the United States flag and blue uniforms Union soldiers wore.
The Flag Act of 1865 officially adopted the Third National flag. Unfortunately the law passed near the very end of the war and very few flags were made and put on the field. While very few Confederate soldiers ever saw the flag it’s now almost universally distinguished in Dixie.
The Blood Stained Banner features many prominent attributes. The upper left corner bears the Battle Flag of The Army of North Virginia. The Army of North Virginia of course was commanded by the great General Robert E. Lee. It was known across Dixie and the North for decimating Yankee forces even against great odds, outnumbered and out supplied. It was of course to inspire Rebel troops and instill fear into Union forces. The white field was meant to symbolize the purity of their cause. Which of course was a small federal government.
Where you can find one today

The rebel flag has undergone a lot with in the past year. Ever since the tragedy in Charleston every single liberal, political correctness Nazi, and “progressive” in this country has defiled the flag without having the slightest idea what it represents or truly means. We already wrote on the symbolism behind its creation which you can read here. It’s time someone wrote in the rebel flag’s defence.
Drive down the country side and everywhere you see a rebel flag you’ll see hardworking hands. It flies over the home’s of honest Southern. Whether they’re a farmer, doctor, or small business owner. We understand the value of an honest wage. It’s one of our core values, and one like many others thats embodied in our flag.
It’s a symbol that stands against government oppression, and tyranny. For those that really know their history the confederate flag serves as a reminder to always question our government. It stands to serve us, not the other way around. This is why those who fly the rebel flag are more likely to vote, and be politically active. Among other things the flag is used for peaceful protest against an overbearing federal government.
Lastly, it’s a symbol of pride. The term Heritage not Hate is used often in reference to our flag. There’s a lot of truth behind these words. We fly our flag because we’re proud of where we’re from. Race doesn’t matter as there’s quite a few black men and women who are proud to be from Dixie and fly the flag as well. It’s to show off our roots, not oppress a certain group.
So, if you want a generation of Americans who are hardworking, politically informed voters, and actually stand during the National anthem. I’d suggest your raise them under the rebel flag, it will do them a lot more good than you think. If I’ve managed to change your mind, or if you’re looking for a new flag we have the rebel flag for sale here.
Officer of the Year Matthew Cammarn was responding to a call in the Nashville housing projects. The call involved a domestic dispute in which 22 year old Brain Shannon was seen hitting a young woman. This is when the alleged criminal fought back, repeatedly beating Cammarn. About 30 seconds of video was captured clearly showing onlookers joining in on the vicious beating. Shannon was able to escape in the commotion. The minute Officer Cammarn was able to get up the cowards dispersed, and Cammarn sought out medical attention.
Just last year Cammarn was awarded “Officer of the Year” in Nashville, Tennessee for saving the life of 17 year old who had been shot through a major artery. In one year Officer Cammarn went from being a hero to being beat down for doing his job. Many of the big news media players only briefly touched on the subject. Had these circumstances been reversed and a black man been savagely beaten by white teens it would play nonstop for weeks. Please help us bring this story to light by sharing this post on Facebook.
Update: Cammarn is recovering from his injuries, and Brain Shannon was been apprehended. What sentence do you believe Brain Shannon deserves? Comment below.
