Based on the dairy of 4th Corporal William Membane Pollard of the 1st Tennessee Infantry Company D “Williamson Grays”, these flag represent an example of the flags encountered by the remnants of the Army of Tennessee as the followed Sherman's Army into South Carolina during the 1865 Carolina Campaign. 

March 16, 1865 Entry: 

"March 16th passed a crowd of young ladies with flags flying, upon which was inscribed “Faithful to the ashes of the Army of Tennessee, Welcome to South Carolina” “God is for us” 2 p.m. stop with a Mr. Nicholson, wet and cold."

No additional information is present regard the type/style of flag or how the text was presented. However, based on the nature and context, it is most likely that the flags were either South Carolina State Flags or 1st/2nd National Colors. As such, three such examples have been produced representing likely appearances, with all of the base flags being copied from known South Carolina local production flags.
