World's 2nd Largest Confederate Flag

They have changed it to a Civil War flag.

[Michele, 06/08/2021]

This is still a Confederate flag; in fact, it's the first Confederate national flag, with seven stars for the seven original seceding states. What everyone calls the "Confederate Flag" was a design rejected by the Confederate congress, but adopted by the Confederate army for battlefield use because of its distinctive design.

World's Largest Confederate Flag

World's Largest Confederate Flag was MIA (missing in action). Driving on the interstate I noticed the battle flag had been replaced. In its place was a mainly white flag with a large red strip and a small battle flag within it.

What happened? Was there some type of truce that I didn't know about? Did the snowbirds win a protest? Nah, the battle flag was being repaired. In its place was the "Third National Flag" of the Confederacy. I got a history lesson of the flags from "Critter" McDaniels, who is a part of the color guard. I just happened to visit while they were there to put back the flag... "The World's Largest Confederate Flag."
