Designating Flag of the Army of the Mississippi’s Second Brigade, Sixth Division, Cavalry Corps “Custer” Style Guidon
Designating flags were used as a means to identify the command posts of United States Army units. Cavalry units were usually swallowtail guidons or pennant-shaped like this example. The symbols and colors that appeared on the designating flags identified the brigade, division, corps, and army of the command headquarters.
