The History of the Lone Star Flag

The Lone Star Flag was adopted on January 25, 1839, and features one white star against a blue vertical stripe and horizontal white and red stripes, symbolizing unity as one state, with each color representing bravery (red), purity (white) and loyalty (blue).

A Symbol of Independence

Texasans are well known for their fierce independence, dating back to the Texas Revolution of 1836 when Texas won its independence from Mexico. The Lone Star Flag became an emblematic representation of their state’s autonomy and sovereignty during that struggle and remains so today.

The Pledge to the Texas Flag

Texas citizens follow in the tradition of pledge allegiance to their state flag in similar fashion as Americans do – both pledge allegiance to one flag at public events and schools and honor it by taking an Oath in its honor: “Honor the Texas Flag; I Pledging Allegiance To Texas as One and Indivisible State….” This daily ritual reinforces unity and pride as being Texasan.

Conclusion

The Lone Star Flag stands as an embodiment of Texas’ unflagging spirit and pride. For Texans, its presence symbolizes honor, pride, and unwavering dedication to values that Texas cherishes – such as freedom, independence, and unity represented by its symbols – such as independence. For Americans outside the state’s borders it represents something much larger.
