Confederate Socialist States of America by achaley Confederate Socialist States of America by achaley
This is my favorite flag so far it represents a communist revolution in the C.S.A. by the black slaves and the impoverished people of the confederacy against the slave holding Bourgeoisie to form the mighty People's Confederacy

The base for this was www.deviantart.com/art/Flag-of…

Do I hear Jefferson Davis turning over in his grave?  Actually, assuming an independent South, if it looked like it were turning communist, the U.S. govt would have intervened in this civil war in an instant.  Would the various factions in the independent South, racked by this civil war--plantation owners, poor whites, immigrants, blacks, other racial minorities etc.--have banded together to fight the U.S.?  Plantation owners would probably have gotten a lot of poor whites on their side (and in so doing, hoped to maintain their supremacy), but I suspect most blacks would not have gone along.  Or, on the other hand, plantation owners might have tried to make a deal with the U.S. that would have allowed them to remain in charge and stop communism, even keep slavery in those states, and the U.S. might have gone with that.  Interesting flag, though.

Well in my timeline the USA wouldn't have interfered for two reasons

1. the revolution happens around 1890's - 1920's before communism was the enemy of the USA. But they would have closely monitored the situation to make sure they aren't a threat to their security or possibly encouraged the revolution to weaken their rival kind of like Putin and the Ukraine

2. After the civil war the USA and the CSA would have signed a treaty of mutual noninterference. Which states that as long as the actions of one doesn't directly threaten the others national security and international interests neither would interfere with the others affairs. So to summarize even if one wanted to help the other they couldn't or they would risk war with that nation and its allies

and as for the Plantation owners that the whole reason the revolution started if you read the description above

Thanks for the Comments

Though the real Confederacy was never a Socialist nation, I like the flag.

Yeah i know its meant to be an alt history in which the confederacy won but in about the 1910's - 1920's the black slaves and impoverished whites rose up against the white wealthy elites and formed a communist nation

Seems interesting, but all of the states under the Confederacy were already Republics.

Yes but the majority of the power and wealth was in the hands of the slave owning 30% of the Souths population. While the other 70% were either small farmers or destitute and all of them were reliant upon the plantation owners for loans and credit. some of which could never get out of debt if thats not a recipe for a communist revolution i dont know what is

Seems like what happened, but not all of the people of the Confederacy and the following United States were Socialists, only a hard full of the population was Socialist, Communistic, and Anarchists.

oh of course but if the confederacy had succeeded and the southern aristocratic system had remained in place. A revolution against it isn't to far fetched whether a communist, anarchist or republican revolution i cant be certain this is merely one possible outcome.

Yes, during the new age of the 1900s, communistic people were flowing into America from Europe Americas open border policies during the first world war and the newly formed Soviet Union after Russia's Civil War. If the Confederacy did win the Civil War in America, then those Republic states would face oppression.

i completely agree although i think that the idea of overthrowing the southern "bourgeois" would have appealed greatly to black slaves and impoverished whites. and thus would been a more significant factor in this timeline.

If their was ac communist revolution by the salves I don't know if they would have made that center symbol theirs or that hey would even keep the stars and bars but its a nice model it looks good

Thanks

My thought process was that Slaves and the impoverished southerners revolted, And since the south was extremely racist at this time African Americans would be treated much the same as during the time of racial segregation, And so they wouldn't have had a say in the flag design

yea but the center symbol is my main thought I don't think it was around in the late 19th century I'd Google it or ask some one from the CPDA communism

Just some creative license, I used C.P.U.S.A ( Communist Party USA) symbol to make it look more American centric while still retaining Communist symbolism

I know where it's from I just questioned the historical accuracy but I guess I can't really do that because were playing with alternate history really
