Homer E. McCoy, Jr.

This State Flag represents many years of Texas pride. The lone star design has flown over Texas for more than 150 years, since the days when we were still an independent republic. It was designed to reflect the spirit of independence in the new republic, a spirit which remains strong today.

The Texas flag is divided into three bars, a vertical blue stripe representing loyalty, a horizontal white stripe for purity, and a horizontal red stripe signifying bravery and blood of those who died in Texas' war for independence. In the middle of the blue stripe is a single star, the star of liberty riding in Texas.

Because of this special nature, I know you will display the flag with honor and dignity.
