Please clarify this to me: Which Lightning bolt created the Silver Age Flash? The one from the Crisis on Infinite Earths or the Flash: Rebirth story arc. Thanks!

They're the same lightning bolt, if I'm not mistaken.

So does that mean the bolt from C.I.E. and Rebirth gave Barry super speed?  For the longest time I know, the bolt from C.I.E. is THE one that gave him the power. But based on Barry's overview here, it says a different thing. He just entered the Speed Force the 1st time.

Technically, the lightningbolt from COIE created the silver-age Flash, but it was later retconned in The Flash: Rebirth.
