These 12" X 18" Confederate flags are on a wooden dowel. They are intended to mark Confederate Soldiers graves.
Grave Etiquette Decorating graves, or “Flags in”:
For larger flags 12” X 18”, place it 2 foot from the front center of the stone so as not to obstruct the inscription. If there is a Southern Cross of Honor, or bronze plaque with flag holder, make sure they are cemented in place 6 inches to 8 inches to the right (as you look at the stone) leaving the left side open for the 12” X 18” flags.
