dv-ous: That's weird... Kentucky wasn't a part of the Confederacy.

Well, they weren't, at first. Neither were they "with the Union". Then technically the Confederacy invaded, thus causing the Union to counter-invade. And the Pro-Confederacy Kentuckians said "That's it, we're seceding" and the pro-Union Kentuckians said "Nu-uh! You're General came in first" and the Confeds were all like "Well, Ol' Polk never could read road maps, and anyhow his favourite niece just lives over the border and he prob'ly just wanted a look-see and it wasn't like a real invasion like your guy Grant did" to which the Union guys said "Says you, we're going Union", and the farmers raising livestock and growing food wiped their eyes of tears saying "My, this war between brothers is a terrible thing, now, who's paying best prices for Cavalry horses?"

Technically not...but it was represented on that flag because there was a shadow "secessionist government" that declared secession. No one cared - other than the traitors who were desperate for legitimacy, of course..

The flag's stars represented the number of states in the Confederacy. The distance between the stars decreased as the number of states increased, reaching thirteen when the secessionist factions of Kentucky and Missouri joined in late 1861.

Amusing footnote: the "Stainless Banner," which was adopted as the national flag of the CSA, was criticized for being "too white" and too easily stained. Do those objections count as irony?

Wikipedia says there is a "biggest potato" contest. I wonder which Kentucky resident will win that one.
