Is the Florida State Flag of Confederate inspiration?

I've heard some people say that the red cross on the Florida state flag is intended to resemble the Confederate battle flag, and others say it is of Spanish origin.

    A quick google search found this info:

    DESCRIPTION:

    Adopted in 1900, the flag recalls the Southern Cross used by the Confederacy during the Civil War.

    That red cross is placed on a white shield, with the state seal centered. The flag represents the land of sunshine, flowers, palm trees, rivers and lakes.

    The seal features a brilliant sun, a cabbage palmetto tree, a steamboat sailing and a Native American Seminole woman scattering flowers.
