The third national flag "the Blood Stained Banner" was adopted by congress March 4, 1865. The red vertical bar was added because the pure white field of the Second National flag could be mistaken as a white flag of surrender while hanging in no wind. The flag's Southern Cross canton could accidentally stay hidden, so the flag could possibly appear all white. The flag was described as symbolizing the primary origins of the people of the Confederacy, with the St. Andrew's Cross of the British flags as well as the red bar from the flag of France.
Despite the passage of the Flag Act of 1865, very few third national flags were actually produced and put into use.
