The Texas state flag dates back to the year of 1836. It was under this flag that the people of Texas fought the Texas Revolution against Mexico. Texas won the war, declared its independence and became the Republic of Texas. It remained an independent Republic until it became a state of the United States in 1845. The color blue stands for loyalty, white for purity, and red for bravery. Our heavyweight nylon and polyester Texas flags are made in America by Annin Flagmakers, the nation's oldest and largest flag manufacturer. Annin has produced flags since 1847. Bold, brilliant colors with white heading, and large brass grommets.
