The proposed flag resembled the United States flag, but replaced the "stripes" with 3 "bars". The flag had 7 stars, one for each state that was part of the confederacy at the time. This flag was dubbed the "Stars and Bars". The United States flag had been known as the "Stars and Stripes".
As more states joined the Confederacy, more stars were added to the flag. Eventually the Stars and Bars had a total of 13 stars. The thirteen states represented were: South Carolina, Mississippi, Florida, Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana, Texas, Virginia, Arkansas, North Carolina, Tennessee, Missouri, and Kentucky. Note that Missouri and Kentucky never officially seceded, but were slave states, and did have some confederate state governments, although they were in exile for the most part.
I hope this portion of the referenced website is helpful in answering your question
