General Lee’s Headquarters Flag

The flag’s thirteen stars represent the eleven states of the Confederacy, along with Missouri and Kentucky, which remained in the Union but had significant secessionist factions. On Lee’s headquarters flag, the stars are arranged in the so–called Bread of Life pattern. According to the historian Joseph H. Crute Jr. the pattern represents the Ark of the Covenant and was “symbolic of the Bread of Life which is the symbol of spiritual nourishment.” The scholar Robert N. Rosen further argues that such imagery is “consistent with Southerners’ fascination with ancient Israel” and Old Testament symbols.
