===The Battle Flag===<!-- This section is linked from Kentucky -->
Often referred to as ''The'' battle flag of the Confederacy it was the design that was the basis of more than 180 separate Confederate military battle flags.{{Citation needed|date=October 2009}}

The [[Army of Northern Virginia]] battle flag was usually square, of various sizes for the different branches of the service: 48&nbsp;inches square for the infantry, 36&nbsp;inches for the artillery, and 30&nbsp;inches for the cavalry. It was used in battle beginning in December 1861 until the fall of the Confederacy. The blue color on the saltire in the battle flag was navy blue, as opposed to the much lighter blue of the Naval Jack.

The flag's stars represented the number of states in the Confederacy. The distance between the stars decreased as the number of states increased, reaching thirteen when the secessionist factions of [[Confederate government of Kentucky|Kentucky]] and [[Confederate government of Missouri|Missouri]] joined in late 1861.<ref>{{harv|Coski|2005|p=11}}</r ef>
