The flag you picture was not "the flag of the Confederate States from 1861-1865." The CSA had three national flags, but this was not one of them. A square version of the flag in your picture was the Confederate Battle Flag and the rectangular version in your picture was used as the Confederate Navy Jack. There are many aspects of this Confederate flag story (and what the flag represents), but I'll stick to pointing out the simple facts — which almost nobody seems to understand anymore. Here's a link for confirmation if you're interested: http://www.usflag.org/confederate.stars.and.bars.html
