  FLAG OF THE CONFEDERATE STATES OF AMERICA
by matcrazy1
 
 

This flag on my picture was put just by the entrance to the Museum of the Confederacy and is commonly known as the "STARS AND BARS".

The flag contained 13 five pointed stars. Each star symbolized one state admitted to the Confederacy:
- Virginia,
- North Carolina,
- South Carolina,
- Georgia,
- Florida,
- Albama,
- Mississippi,
- Louisiana,
- Texas,
- Tennessee,
- Kentucky,
- Missouri,
- Arkansas.

These states are called the South now. Map here
