Who designed the Texas Flag and when did it become the state flag?
Early designs of the Texas flag are attributed to many including Joanna Troutman, Sara Dodson, Charles Bellinger Stewart, Peter Krag and William Wharton, but the actual designer of the Lone Star Flag is not known. The flag was introduced to the Congress of the Republic of Texas on December 28, 1838 and was adopted on January 25, 1839 as the final national flag. When Texas became the 28th State of the Union on December 29, 1845 it then became the State Flag.
Where can I buy a Texas Flag?
A beautiful Texas Flag is sold by Star Spangled Flags and it has awesome reviews. The biggest reason is that it is 100% made in the U.S.A. Also, it is made of a heavyweight durable Nylon specifically treated to dry fast and resist sun and chemical deterioration. The magnificent white star is appliqued using densely filled thread count. All of the hems are sewn using superior lock stitches to prevent unraveling. The fly end has four rows of lock stitching to improve durability, increase flag life and prevent fading.
What does the design on the Texas Flag stand for (represent)?
The Texas Flag code assigns the following symbolism to the colors of the Texas Flag: blue stands for loyalty, white for purity, and red for bravery. The code also states that the single star represents all of Texas and stands for our unity as one for God, State and Country. The lone star is an older symbol predating the flag which was used to symbolize Texan’s solidarity in declaring independence from Mexico.
How and when should you display the Texas Flag?
When the flag is displayed against a wall, the blue field should be at the flag’s own right. When it is flown vertically, the blue stripe should be uppermost and the white stripe should be to the state flag’s right. If it is being flown with the American Flag on the same pole, it should be placed underneath and is to be the same size or smaller. As an individual, you may fly the Texas Flag anytime you wish.
How is the Texas Flag similar to the Chile Flag?
As the Associated Press reports, the flags, admittedly, are remarkably similar. Both have a white stripe on top and red on the bottom, plus a single star in the middle of a blue field. However, on Chile’s flag, the blue is only in the top left corner, whereas on Texas’s, the blue is displayed all along the left side. Texas and Chile aren’t the only two places that share similar flags. Examine the flags of Iraq and Yemen. The flags of the U.S. and Liberia and the flags of Niger and India are also similar.
