    Cotton flags feature a very heavy, luxurious look and feel. They are commonly used indoors because of their old world, hand crafted appearance but can also be flown outside, although they are not very durable or fade resistant with prolonged exposure to the outdoor elements. Cotton flags are also suitable for tea staining and/or framing and hanging indoors.

    This is a beautifully sewn cotton Rebel 38x38 square battle flag. The square battle flag was most commonly used by Confederate infantry, artillery and cavalry units because it was one of the few flags of the Confederacy that was professionally made in large quantities and was most readily available. The Virginia Clothing Depot primarily made uniforms, socks and drawers for the Confederate military, but also produced quite a number of flags, the square battle flag being one of them. Officially, the 38"x38" flag was intended for Artillery units.
