It was first flown over the capitol building in Montgomery, Alabama on 4 March 1861. (Montgomery was the first capitol of the Confederacy, until it was moved to Richmond, Virginia.). The pattern and colors of this flag did not distinguish it sharply fom the Stars and Stripes of the Union. Consequently, considerable confusion was caused on the battlefield.
It was originally adopted with 7 stars (one for each member of the new Confederacy). Stars were added as new states seceded and joined the Confederacy. The seven stars represent the original Confederate States; South Carolina (December 20, 1860), Mississippi(January 9, 1861), Florida (January 10,1861), Alabama (January 11, 1861), Georgia (January 19, 1861), Louisiana (January 26, 1861), and Texas (February 1, 1861).
