I am looking for any information on what any of the flags carried by the 2nd Florida would have looked like. Thank you for any help you can give.

Some discussion of the 2nd Florida's flag at Gettysburg was happening over on the A-C. Here's the link:

This flag was the last in a series of battle flags carried by the 2nd Florida Infantry Regiment. The capture number of "414" (upper left) indicates that it was probably surrendered at Appomattox.
