Southern 13 Colonies Flag - Post Historical

This flag represents the Five Southern Colonies that rebelled against Congress (British Parliament) on July 4, 1776.  The middle blue star represents Virginia, the first of English Colonies.  The top star represents Maryland.  The hoist star represents South Carolina.  The fly-ward star represents North Caorlina, and the southern star represents Georgia. 

The design pays tribute to the flag of Scotland where many Southerns originated from, likewise an echo of Jamaica is honored due to the African-Jamaican cultural link of many Southerners.

Like the Scots-Irish in the USA, we have the Afro-Jamaikish.  The Scotch-Irish are a double transplant from Scotland to Ireland to the USA.  In concordance the Afro-Jamaikish are double transplants from Africa to Jamaica to America.
