Second Pattern Confederate National Flag, Possibly Issued to the CS Navy
4/30/2014 - Firearms and Militaria: Live Salesroom Auction
Second pattern Confederate National flag, wool bunting, 52 x 106 in., with 13 hand-sewn, cotton stars configured in the shape of a diagonal cross, atop a blue wool bunting saltire, on a red ground. The technique used in sewing the stars is consistent with the Civil War-period technique, which consisted of stitches around the outer edges of the star. The white field is comprised of 8 bolts of wool bunting sewn together with flat fell seams. The white bunting, which is single-ply, is typical of CS Navy and large storm and garrison flags (done so as to allow enough air to pass through the flag thus extending its life). The cotton hoist, with jute rope, is identical to the naval flag attachment system as well as those for posts, bases, etc. The hoist edge is cotton canvas, and some of the larger land flags used the same hoist system as naval flags. Most of the large, post-war Confederate flags of this type have metal grommets, lacking on this one. The grommets were used by wartime US flags and with post-Civil War Confederate flags, indicating that this is most likely a wartime flag. Based on its overall construction, the flag might have been issued to the Confederate Navy. However, it is also possible that this is a post flag, as storm and garrison flags were typically larger than this one.

A fine flag, worthy of additional research. 

Accompanied by a report compiled by Military Historian, Gregory G. Biggs.


Condition:  
Flag with frayed edges (especially fly) and scattered holes throughout; light, scattered stains throughout, with some areas of separation, including areas where stitching occurred. Hoist has separated from bottom left edge of blue saltire. Most stars OK, although one is partially ripped along back side (bottom left corner), and some stars are lightly stained.
