The first official national flag of the Confederacy, called the "Stars and Bars," (left), was first flown on March 4, 1861. Inspired by Austria's national flag, it was designed by Prussian artist Nicola Marschall in Marion, Alabama. The Stars and Bars flag was adopted March 4, 1861 in Montgomery, Alabama and raised over the dome of that first Confederate Capitol. Marschall also designed the Confederate Army uniform.

Eventually, a total of 13 stars would be shown on the flag, reflecting the Confederacy's recognition that Kentucky and Missouri seceded from the Old Republic and joined the Confederacy. The first public appearance of the 13-star flag was outside the Ben Johnson House in Bardstown, Kentucky; the 13-star design was also in use as the Confederate Navy's battle ensign. This flag was temporarily replaced by a Second and Third National Flags. After the War's conclusion the Confederate Congress voted to return to using the Stars and Bars as the Official National Flag with more Stars being added later. Today the Stars and Bars has 17 Stars.

Above (center and right) are the Commemorative Flags approved in 1961 by the CS Congress to celebrate the 100th Anniversary of the Independence of the Confederate States from the Old Republic . These flags combine the Stars and Bars with the CS Army's Battle Flag.
