No, my Dear One, the Confederate flag you're speaking of is the Battle Flag. It was the one taken into war and the one theUnion Army most often saw. The Govermental Flag was that of the "Stars and Bars"and was not as well known outside of the South.
Unfortunately for the Battle Flag, it's been used to stand for not only the South but for the KKK, the white power movement and a great deal of negativity now surrounds it.
I'm from Wisconsin and have almost always been, as my Georgian uncle says a "dyed in the wool Southerner" which appalls my mother. (blush) It must be from a past life. I also do Civil War reenactment and have done extensive research in the domestic areas of the War.
It's the same for the Nazi banner. It stands for what the War did to it, like it or not. And I do NOT like to see the Battle Flag flown next to that damned swastika I can tell you that much.
Hate is a horrible thing. It poisons the soul of those who use it and those that spread it. Lets all try and stop it, shall we? Blessings.
