Great Star Union 35 star 3X5 Flag
During the Civil War, the Union forces used four official flags with 33, 34, and 35 stars .The 35-star flag was the one flown most extensively during this time. During the War, the Confederate State stars were not removed from the Union flags, as the Federal government would not recognize by removing stars. The 35-star flag flew over Union forces from Gettysburg, Vicksburg, and Appomattox. Our flag displays the popular "Grand Illuminary" pattern, with the individual stars of the canton arranged into a "Great Star."
