The Museum of the Confederacy’s entire collection of 685 flags is available 
for the first time in a searchable database.
The non-profit Richmond museum says the collection can be found on the flag 
page of the museum’s Web site at http://www.moc.org.
Each entry includes a flag’s identification, history and measurements. 
Color photos are available for most of the flags.
The collection is impossible difficult to find once you are on their 
website.  Here’s a more direct link:

For those not familiar with the Museum’s holdings, it is said to be the largest individual
collection of Confederate flags in the United States.
Some  years ago, a climate-controlled area was set apart, special drawers designed 
and constructed, to hold the delicate flags of states, regiments, divisions, etc.  They 
are carefully preserved and conserved, and vexillologists across the country know
where to do their research.
Even with the Museum’s recent decision to split many of its holdings ultimately 
into three different areas to be displayed, we are told that the flag collection 
will remain where it has always been, in the Museum at 12th and Clay Streets,
in Richmond, Virginia.
