1. The flag commonly known as the Confederate Flag was never the national flag of the CSA, however the CSA did have three national flags during its short history, the Stars and Bars, the Stainless Banner, and the Blood Stained Banner

2. The flag is not the Confederate battle flag either, that flag shared the same symbols and colors but was square. The flag is actually a conglomeration of the 2nd naval jack and the battle flag, using the dimensions of the naval jack and the dark blue used on the battle flag.

3. While the modern flag and even some of the historical flags are used by white supremacist groups such as the KKK and the Neo-Nazis, both groups adopted the American flag, without any modifications or symbol defacements, as their official flags.

4. The Army Ranger insignia used at the US Army Rangers School of Ft. Benning includes the Confederate battle flag in honor of John S. Mosby and the 43rd Battalion Virginia Cavalry.

5. The modern flag, often known as the Southern Cross, the Dixie Flag, and the Rebel Flag, is often incorrectly referred to as the Stars and Bars.

6. A starless version of the modern flag has reportedly been used by Novorossiyan insurgents in Eastern Ukraine. Novorossiya is a confederation of two unrecognized breakaway states known as Donetsk and Lugansk that have been formed during the ongoing Ukrainian Crisis.

7.  Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, and South Carolina all have laws banning the desecration of any Confederate or American flag, however protection for any flag was ruled unconstitutional by the Supreme Court and thus none of the laws can be enforced.

8.  The USS Columbia (CL-56) flew the 2nd Confederate naval jack as a battle flag throughout combat in the South Pacific in World War II. This was done in honor of the ship's namesake, the capital city of South Carolina, the first state to secede from the Union.

May beauty and wisdom surround and enrich you every day of the year.  May you laugh as often as you learn, may you know love and give love, may you see beauty and know it beautiful, may you dance instead of sigh, laugh instead of weep, and see the wonder of creation swirling always around you.  Might joyous memories and happy encounters leave you with a smile the normal wear and tear of life can never banish for long.  May you relish and surpass every new challenge, and seek adventure bravely.  Have the happiest of birthdays, and thank you for the gifts you gave US!  

And I'm glad you liked my poem.  Had to fire at least one shot back.
