From what I have read the Confederate flag was designed by William Thompson of Savannah, GA. He wrote the following:

"While we consider the flag which as been adopted by the senate as a very decided improvement of the old United States flag, we still think the battle flag, on a pure white field would be appropriate and handsome. Such a flag would be a suitable emblem of our young confederacy, and sustained by the brave hearts and strong arms of the south, it would soon take rank among the proudest ensigns of the nation, and be hailed by the civilized world as THE WHITE MAN'S FLAG."

This is an excerpt from an article titled: Here’s the Racist Meaning Of the Confederate Flag, In the Words of the Man Who Designed It
