This flag is the Choctaw Flag, and something similar to it would probably have been carried by Choctaw troops during the war. This reproduction is made with a blue cotton field; while the red circle, white tomahawk, white arrows, and white bow are felt. But, the white border, around the red circle, is painted on. This flag was made for the 1st Choctaw Mounted Rifles reenactment group. More info on Choctaws and the American Civil War can be found at. . . http://www.choctawnationculture.com/...ivil%20War.pdf
