    If you mean the flag everyone flies today - that was the battle flag of the Army of Northern Virginia.

    Rednecks in the south and north re-adopted it during the civil rights battles of the 1950's and 1960's. Bands like Lynard Skynard and Molly Hatchet also re-popularized the flag with southern based rock-n-roll, or country-fried rock.
