Confederate parade flag of a type used for the reunions of the United Confederate Veterans organization. When in rectangular format, this design, sometimes called the "Battle Flag" or the "Southern Cross" is often termed the flag of the Army of Northern Virginia. The U.C.V., or United Confederate Veterans, was founded in 1889, after it became more acceptable for the aging members of the former Confederate Army to gather for purposes relating to their former service. This example shows nice age with no tears or damage. The flag measures 16 inches by 11 inches and is mounted on a 28-inch pole.
