Flag of the (White) South

Used routinely at the turn of the 20th century as a symbol of the Confederacy, the flag emerged by the mid 20th century as a symbol, more generally, of “The South.”  A harbinger of things to come appeared in this 1907 advertisement (published originally in a magazine for Confederate Veterans) by the Olds Motor Company of Detroit: the Confederate battle flag and the Stars and Stripes adorned an automobile driven north to south, New York to Florida.
