The Bloodstained Banner – A Symbol of Courage


A symbol of courage, the bloodstained banner is designed to motivate you to achieve your goals. Whether you’re hitting the gym or taking on the world, this is a great way to show your boldness and strength.

This flag was used by the 1st Battalion, Seaforth Highlanders, at Lokchao Bridge during 33 Corps’ advance on Tamu, 27 July 1944. The messages on the flag read “divine fighting spirit”, “leadership will reach thousands of miles” and “for construction of world history”.

Bloodstained Banner: Unveiling the Symbolism and Controversy

Among the reasons why this particular flag was chosen by the Confederacy is that, vexillologically speaking, it is almost perfect: It incorporates widely recognized elements—the St. Andrew’s Cross, a cross associated with Presbyterianism and resistance to tyranny; stars, which symbolize liberty and democracy; and red, white, and blue, which are the colors of republics.

The flag is also meaningful because it was a central symbol of the Confederacy’s struggle against what they perceived to be a tyrannical United States government that favored black people. The Confederacy was willing to die for their cause, but they believed the US government was trying to destroy them. Thus, they were prepared to fight under a “blood-stained banner.”
