C.S.A.: The Confederate States of America is a 2004 US alternate history film in the form of a mock-documentary made by the BBC on the history of the CSA - this in a timeline in which which the Confederacy had decisively won the Civil War and absorbed the defeated US. The movie is in many ways more satire than a serious attempt at alternate history , though even major-league undertakings in the field tend to suffer from an impulse to simply recycle actual events and personages in strange new contexts.

Confederate States of America

by Rick Wyatt, 20 November 1997

The flag of the CSA is shown in several iconic scenes where it essentially replaces the US flag (being planted on the moon, pledged allegiance to by kids in a classroom, flying over the White House) and is the familiar Naval Jack rather than any of the three Confederate national flags (one presumes for the audience's greater familiarity with it rather than out of ignorance by the filmmakers, as the production is otherwise reasonably sound historically.)
