Texas Flag
State Flag of Texas
The state flag of Texas, otherwise known as the Lone Star Flag, was first designed as a single gold star centered on a sky blue background. The "National Standard of Texas," as it was called, was approved as the first flag of the Republic of Texas by President Sam Houston at the end of 1836, more than eight years before Texas joined the Union.

The Texas flag was redesigned in January of 1839 and the bill of adoption was signed by then President Mirabeau B. Lamar. This design, which has never been conclusively attributed to any one individual, still flies over the Texas State Capitol today.
