states had their own flag and battle flag.
"Stainless Banner": 1863-1865
The next flag featured the battle flag of
Robert E Lee in Northern Virginia, The white space represented the superiority of the white race
"Blood-Stained Banner": 1865
The second flag looked like a white flag of surrender so they added a red stripe. This was the final Confederate flag.
What is this then?
This is a version of Robert E Lee's battle flag that was later adopted as the Naval Jack. Many historians argue that this flag was rarely used because it was so niche. The flag started to be used in 1904 by Confederate vets but only became popular after states flew it at their capitals to support segregation laws during the Civil Rights era in
Dixiecrat states and is now used as a symbol of white supremacy nation wide
In short: No, this flag is not honoring your veteran ancestors. They probably didn't use it. And yes, it is racist.

States didnt fly it to support segregation, they flew it to support their ideals in the war so please stop spreading propaganda. The blm movement and flag is racially motivated and based solely on black vs white so if a statue or flag hurts your feelings then those hiirt mine Eaire fair
