For hundreds of years the Confederate Flag was the symbol of Southern
heritage, and had many nicknames: The Rebel flag, Dixie flag, Southern
Cross, The Cross of St. Andrew, and the Battle flag of the Confederacy.
There is perhaps no better source of pride than showing off your
spirit by flying or displaying a flag. Whether showing your national or
state allegiance, honoring your favorite sports team or just using a
flag with colorful designs to highlight the time of year there are ample
reasons to have one visible.
