Actully the Army of Tennessee did feature some units who used a rectangular St. Andrews cross design in the late war (1863-64 thereabouts), if I remember correctly it was meant to differentiate them from the ANV.  That said, they still used it with unit designations and I believe their pattern also had a border, as did the square ANV pattern.  It was not plain as the knockoffs are today.  Also the Naval Jack was rectangular.  How often CS naval ships actually used it as opposed to Nationals of the various patterns, I can't say.
