So, What Really Is the Confederate Flag?

From the November 27, 2016, Yeshiva University Commentator "The Confederate Flag You Never Knew" by Uri Seligman.

What most people call the Confederate Flag (the rectangular one most often seen) is actually the Second Confederate Naval Jack (1863-1865).  This would have been officially flown on Confederate ships.  The square version is actually the battle flag of Lee's Army of Northern Virginia.

It consists of a blue St. Andrew's Cross on a red field.
