Texas has long been nicknamed the Lone Star State due to the design of the original Republic of Texas flag, and the current design, both of which incorporate a single 5-point star.
The original design, known as the National Standard of Texas, flew over the Republic of Texas from 1836-1839. The original flag had one gold 5-pointed star set on an azure blue field. It was approved by Texas President Sam Houston on December 10, 1836. This flag flew over the Republic of Texas until January 25, 1839.
National Standard of Texas adopted 1836 A bill describing the “Lone Star Flag”, a flag that would become the second official flag of the Republic of Texas, was introduced on December 28, 1838 by Senator William H. Wharton. The bill was, of course, referred to committee and this committee proposed a substitute bill including the same flag design proposed by Senator Wharton. This bill was passed by the Texas Congress on January 21, 1839 and approved by Texas President Mirabeau B. Lamar on January 25, 1839, almost 6 years before Texas was annexed by the United States.
The House of Representatives of the 75th Texas Legislature officially commemorated Montgomery County, Texas, as the birthplace of the original Lone Star Flag in a House Resolution:
The Lone Star Flag, with its vibrant fields of red, white, and blue and a single inset star, has served as a proud symbol of Texas since 1839; and WHEREAS, At the request of President Mirabeau B. Lamar, Dr. Charles B. Stewart of Montgomery County created this inspirational banner, and the elegant simplicity of his design truly exemplified the united will of the citizens of the new Republic of Texas; and WHEREAS, After winning approval by a committee of six signers of the Texas Declaration of Independence and then Congress, the Lone Star Flag was officially designated in 1839, and since that time it has graced flagpoles across the state of Texas; and WHEREAS, Following Dr. Stewart’s passing, his flag sketch and other materials were handed down first to his son, Edmund, and later to his granddaughter, Elizabeth Stewart Fling, who donated them to the State Archives in Austin in order to preserve her grandfather’s historic works for current and future generations of Texans; and WHEREAS, In recognition of Dr. Stewart’s timeless contribution to our state’s heritage, a history of the flag documentation was created for permanent display at the Montgomery County Heritage Museum in Conroe; and WHEREAS, Dr. Charles B. Stewart’s design of the Lone Star Flag created in cloth and in color an embodiment of the spirit and will of the people of Texas, and his work remains a great source of pride to the people of Montgomery County today, nearly 160 years after its creation; now, therefore, be it RESOLVED, That the House of Representatives of the 75th Texas Legislature hereby officially commemorate Montgomery County as the birthplace of the Lone Star Flag. Official artwork created for the Lone Star Flag approved by President Lamar was drawn by Peter Krag.
The national flag of Texas shall consist of a blue perpendicular stripe of the width of one third of the whole length of the flag, with a white star of five points in the centre thereof, and two horizontal stripes of equal breadth, the upper stripe white, the lower red, of the length of two thirds of the whole length of the flag.
When Texas was admitted to the Union in 1845, the Lone Star Flag came along. And so it was until 1879 when the Sixteenth Legislature approved the “Revised Civil Statues of 1879.” These revised statutes provided that “all civil statutes of a general nature, in force when the Revised Statutes take effect, and which are not included herein, or which are not hereby expressly continued in force, are hereby repealed.” Since the revised statutes included no legislation concerning the flag and did not “expressly” continue in force the 1839 law, the 1839 flag law was repealed. From the date of the repeal, September 1, 1879 until the 1933 Flag Act, Texas was without an official state flag.
The legislation adopted in 1933, was quite particular about the design and location of the lone star and the colors of the flag: blood red, azure blue and white. The colors were said to impart the “lessons of the Flag: bravery, loyalty and purity.” However, no standard for “blood red” or “azure blue” existed and flags manufactured within the state varied in color and dimension. In 1993, the statutes concerning the flag were revisited and the official description of the state flag was revised.
The state flag consists of a rectangle with a width to length ratio of two to three containing: (1) a blue vertical stripe one-third the entire length of the flag wide, and two equal horizontal stripes, the upper stripe white, the lower red, each two-thirds the entire length of the flag long; and (2) a white, regular five-pointed star in the center of the blue stripe, oriented so that one point faces upward, and of such a size that the diameter of a circle passing through the five points of the star is equal to three-fourths the width of the blue stripe.
The colors of the flag were also stipulated as being “Old Glory Red” and “Old Glory Blue”, the same colors found in the flag of the United States. These colors are defined in the Standard Color Reference of America.
