The Texas State Flag is a beautiful and iconic symbol of Texas pride and patriotism. It is composed of a blue field with a large white star in the center, and white and red stripes. The blue field represents the loyalty of Texans to the United States of America, and the white star is a symbol of the Lone Star State, which is the nickname for Texas. The white and red stripes symbolize the courage and bravery of the Texans who fought for independence from Mexico. The Texas State Flag is a reminder of the spirit and dedication of the people of Texas to the United States of America.
History of the Texas State Flag
The Texas state flag is an iconic symbol of the Lone Star State and has been a source of pride for Texans for generations. The flag was created in 1839, shortly after the Republic of Texas declared independence from Mexico. The original design featured a bright blue field with a single gold star in the center. The star represented the unity of all Texan citizens, regardless of ethnicity or creed.
The first draft of the flag was designed by Dr. Charles B. Stewart, who was then Secretary of War for the Republic of Texas. In his design, Dr. Stewart used a single gold star to represent Texas’s desire for unity and independence from Mexico; he chose blue as the background color to honor the United States’ flag at that time, which also featured a blue background with white stars.
Once adopted as the official flag of Texas, it became widely known as “the Lone Star Flag” due to its single star design. Texans adopted this name to reflect their independent spirit and pride in their own identity and heritage. Over time, as more states were added to the United States, other flags featuring multiple stars were created; however, Texans remained loyal to their original one-star design and refused to alter it in any way.
In 1845, when Texas became part of the United States, its citizens wanted their state flag to remain distinct from other flags that now flew over other states in the union; thus, a new version of the Lone Star Flag was adopted with two changes: firstly, red and white stripes were added along with a second star above them; secondly, an additional phrase was added beneath both stars- “Remember Goliad” -which served as an homage to those who lost their lives during battles for Texan independence from Mexico.
The new version of the Lone Star Flag quickly gained widespread popularity among Texans and even became part of popular folklore in some parts of the state; according to legend if you saw someone carrying this version of the flag you would be able to trust them with your life! This sentiment still holds true today – seeing someone with this version of the Lone Star Flag is seen as a sign that they are an honorable Texan citizen who upholds strong values and supports his or her community.
Today this original version remains unchanged since its adoption over 180 years ago; it continues to be proudly flown at government buildings across Texas as well as at many private homes throughout the state. It is also often seen at sporting events or festivals throughout Texas and is always met with great pride among its citizens when seen flying high above them all!

More About Texas
Texas has had several flags throughout its history. The first official flag of the state of Texas was adopted in 1839, during the Republic of Texas period. Known as the "national flag of the Republic of Texas," it was designed by Senator William H. Wharton, with each of its three stripes representing the three branches of the Republic's government: executive, congressional, and judicial. The white star in the center of the flag represented Texas as a state, while the yellow and red stripes represented the bravery and loyalty of its citizens. In 1845, Texas became the 28th state to join the United States of America. Its state flag was changed to match the national flag of the U.S.A., with the addition of a single white star to represent Texas. This star was later replaced with a blue one to make the flag look more distinctive. In 1861, during the Civil War, Texas joined the Confederate States of America and its state flag was changed again. The new flag was a red field with a blue saltire, and a white star in the center. After the Civil War ended, Texas returned to the Union and the state flag was changed again to its current design. This flag, adopted in 1879, features the traditional blue, white, and red stripes of the U.S.A., with a white star in the center to represent Texas as the 28th state in the Union. The flag's colors were chosen to represent the bravery and loyalty of the Texan people. Today, the Texas state flag is one of the most recognizable symbols of the state, and is flown proudly by Texans throughout the world.
