Flags of the Texas Revolution


The Texians created and used multiple flags throughout the Texan Revolution to represent their cause, six of which we fly daily at the San Jacinto Battleground State Historic Site. All flags send a visual message, and the Texian army had a lot to say! From the crystal-clear invitation to “Come and Take It” on the Gonzales flag, to the symbolic Liberty flag flown at the battle of San Jacinto, these flags proudly display the goals and intentions of the Revolution.

Discover what our six flags represent and learn about the study of vexillology while creating your own flag.
