Montgomery in Montgomery County, Alabama — The American South (East South Central)
“Third National Confederate Flag”
Upon an outpouring of complaints that the 2nd national flag was too similar to a flag of truce, a red bar was added by act of Confederate Congress on March 4, 1865. Very few of these flags ever flew, however, as the war ended shortly thereafter.
