This the state flag of Missouri and the flag of the Missouri State Guard from 1861 to 1865.
The Missouri State Guard was established in May 11, 1861 by the state legislature after declaring Missouri to be “armed neutral.” The legislators voted that neither side would be supplied with troops or equipment. However the Missouri State Guard was created to resist any federal occupation of the state. The Guard maintained a size of around 25,000 men.
The Missouri State Guard fought in a large number of battles and skirmishes within the state against the Union army and pro-Union militias. However, he Guard fought alongside units of the Confederate army in many instances.
This flag is the basis for the modern state flag of Missouri, which was adopted in 1913.
