Forward  the Colors !

The pattern of the outlawed Confederate National flag, The Stars and Bars, is ingeniously disguised into this lithograph of Southern Flowers.
It was made by a drawing instructor during the Federal occupation of  New Orleans.

The small white flowers in the blue blossoms represent the Stars.
The Darker lateral fringes are its bars. 

The deception was spotted by federal authorities who destroyed all but a few of the prints!
