The flag for the combined 6th and 7th Regiment, Arkansas Volunteer Infantry, in the Hardee Battle Flag pattern, Cleburne's Division dated to 1862-1864. It is blue and white with "Ringgold Gap, Liberty Gap, Tunnel Hill, Tenn" in white letters stitched on a blue background. "Murfreesboro, Perryville, Chickamauga" is stitched in blue letters on white a background. "6th and 7th Ark Shiloh, Down with the Tyrant" is stitched in blue on the white disc in the center of the flag.

After heavy losses at Shiloh and Perryville, the 6th Regiment was consolidated with the 7th in December 1862. The Unit served in Arkansan Daniel C. Govan's brigade during the fighting at Ringgold Gap, Georgia. The 7th had been organized in Smithville, Lawrence County, in 1861, and formed the nucleus of Hardee's 1st brigade. The 6th mustered into service in Little Rock, Arkansas. This flag was originally that of the 7th and was altered to accommodate the newly consolidated unit. Except for the "6th and 7th" which is painted, the rest of the script in the disc is embroidered, suggesting that the original embroidered "7th" was removed and replaced. All of the battles honors postdate consolidation, and their appearance in paint is consistent with the practice of decorating flags at the regimental level in the west. The combined 6th & 7th fought at the Battles of Murfreesboro, Chickamauga, Chattanooga and Jonesboro, Georgia. However, the flag was captured on September 1, 1864 in Jonesboro, Georgia by Private Henry B. Mattingly of Co. E, 10th Regt., Kentucky Volunteers.
