General Meade’s Army of the Potomac HQ Guidon – 1864

In May of 1864, Major General George Meade, commanding general of the Army of the Potomac designated this guidon-style flag as the headquarters flag of the Army of the Potomac. The flag consisted of a swallowtail guidon shape with no stripes, but a solid red background and a gold eagle perched in the center of a silver wreath. Previously, a standard US flag was used as the HQ flag. The bright red guidon, however, was more distinctive.

This is a reproduction of the Army of the Potomac Headquarters flag. The actual dimensions are not exactly the same as the original flag.

  • One solid piece of printed, hemmed fabric
  • Lightweight, 100-denier polyester that will fly nicely in the slightest breeze.
  • Bright colors
  • 2 rows of stitching around the outside edge of the flag
  • Reinforced header with brass grommets
  • Flag size: 3′ x 5′
