The General Lee flag was another version of a Confederate flag flown during the Civil War. The flag was believed to have been in use from 1862 to mid-1863 and was flown as the personal flag of the general at locations to announce General Lee's presence. The original General Lee flag made of wool and cotton, was made for General Lee by his wife Mary Custis Lee.

The Robert E. Lee headquarters flag strongly resembled the First National Confederate Flag (Stars and Bars) with three horizontal stripes of red, white and red with a blue canton. Within the canton was an arrangement of 13 stars. The 13 stars are representative of the 11 states of the Confederacy as well as Missouri and Kentucky (which had significant secessionist factions prior to officially seceding). The stars were arranged into a symbol that is referred to as the Bread of Life and was a tribute to the Ark of the Covenant.

The Robert E. Lee headquarters flag was replaced in May of 1863 when the Confederate Government officially adopted the Second National Confederate Flag as the official flag of the Confederacy.
