The Lone Star Flag of Texas

The Texas state flag is the 1839 National flag of the Republic of Texas, which features the famous Lone Star (also seen on the Great Seal of Texas and the U.S. mint's commemorative quarter for Texas). The red, white, and blue of the state flag of Texas represent bravery, purity and loyalty.

Six different national flags have flown over Texas representing the countries which have ruled it (France, Spain, Mexico, the Republic of Texas, the Confederate States of America, and the United States of America). Texans proudly wave all six official flags for public displays and expositions.
