Southern pride never looked so classy before! St. Andrew's Cross, Crossed Battle Flags or Battle Flag and First National Flag.
At the Battle of First Manassas, the similarity between the "Stars and Bars" (the official Confederate flag) and the United States flag led to confusion. So General Beauregard suggested that a new design be created. His aid, William Porcher Miles, already had made a design and this was eventually adopted as the battle flag of the Army of Northern Virginia.
Southerners and "Rebels" around the world have proudly flown the flag ever since!
Approximately 3" (7.5 cm) across. Silver-plated pin back is 1" (2.5 cm) across.
Ragged Old Flag, by Johnny Cash
In her own good land here she's been abused
She's been burned, dishonored, denied, and refused
And the government for which she stands
Is scandalized throughout the land
And she's getting threadbare and she's wearing thin
But she's in good shape for the shape she's in
'Cause she's been through the fire before
And I believe she can take a whole lot more
So we raise her up every morning, we take her down every night
We don't let her touch the ground and we fold her up right
On second thought, I do like to brag
'Cause I'm mighty proud of the Ragged Old Flag

People in the past wore a cockade to tell a story about themselves. I love researching what those stories were and why people wanted to tell them. People today have stories to tell too, so that's what motivates me to keep making cockades! What's your story and how can I help you tell it better?
