~ The Rebel Flag ~

There were three successive national flag designs that served as the official national flags of the Confederate States of America during its existence from 1861 to 1865. Since the end of the American Civil War, private and official use of Confederate States flags, and of flags with derivative designs, has continued under some controversy, both philosophical, political, cultural, and racial, in the United States. These include flags displayed in states, cities/towns/counties, schools/colleges/universities, and private organizations/associations. Today, the current state flag of Mississippi features the familiar Confederate "battle flag" in the "canton", or upper left corner. Georgia's state flag is very similar to the first national flag of the Confederacy, the "Stars and Bars," even though its design has not incorporated the Confederate "battle flag" since 2001 design in the canton of the upper left corner. The designs of several other American state flags, currently in use, such as that of Virginia and Louisiana, date to the time of the Confederacy and the American Civil War. The current flag of North Carolina is also a modified version of the 1861 Confederate design.
