A little history on Maryland during the War Between the States:

During the war, Maryland-born Confederate soldiers used both the red-and-white colors and the cross bottony design from the Crossland quadrants of the Calvert coat of arms as a unique way of identifying their place of birth. Around 25,000 Marylander’s served the Confederacy.

Pins in the cross bottony shape (as seen with our reproduction pin) were worn on uniforms, and the headquarters flag of the Maryland-born Confederate general Bradley T. Johnson was a red cross bottony on a white field.
