FLAGS of Texas During the Revolution

There were numerous flags/banners that were in Texas during the revolutionary period. Few survived the events and the disposition of the others is generally unknown. Naturally, controversy exists over these and other suspected flags. Charlie Yates of the Texian Legacy Association is currently working on a book about these flags. Meanwhile we will have to depend upon some of my research on the Evolution of the Flags of Texas and several web sites for our information.
