Made in USA Outdoor Printed Flag Made to Order

Sometimes known as the “Cherokee Brigade Flag,” the design is based on the Confederate First National Flag pattern. The canton (upper left) is blue with eleven white stars in a circle, surrounding five red stars representing the so-called “Five Civilized Tribes” (Cherokee, Creek, Choctaw, Chickasaw and Seminole). The red star in the center represents the Cherokee Nation, the last one in the alliance. “Cherokee Braves” is lettered in red in the center of the white stripe.
Cherokees had long been used to “close-range combat,” so they were masters of the irregular warfare of guerilla tactics. During the Civil War, Cherokees typically selected terrain for their camps that allowed them to conduct hit-and-run tactics, limited enemies in their attack formations, and gave them an easy escape route through familiar terrain.
