The Louisiana Republic Flag

Thanks to my friend who sent me a flag of the Louisiana Republic, our national banner for the two months after secession and prior to confederation in 1861. It calls to mind our American, French, and Spanish heritage, as well as our desire for home rule, self-government, and independence - especially during the Southern national period.

It's kind of garish and colorful, to be sure. But so are we.
