Did the Confederates ever capture a flag of the regular army?

The following seems to us an incredible statement, and we give it, that we may secure replies from those in position to know the facts:
Admiral Preble says in his history of the flag: “I am informed from the War Department, Washington, there is no record of any flags or flag having been captured by the rebels from the regiments in the Regular Army, and it is believed that none were captured by them.”
