"Austin’s Flag - San Felipe de Austin"

In November 1835, the provisional Texas government sent Stephen F. Austin to the United States to raise support and supplies for the Revolution. The following January, while in New Orleans, he wrote to Gail Borden in San Felipe de Austin with a proposal for a new national flag for Texas.

Austin’s flag was highly symbolic. According to his letter, “The shape of the English Jack in the corner indicates the origin of the North American people. The stripes indicate the immediate descent of the most of the Texians. The star is Texas-the tri colour is Mexican.” The flag represented a real change in heart for Austin. He had long been the voice of moderation in Texas and a supporter of separate statehood and the restoration of the Constitution of 1824. However, in the same letter, he also wrote, “I shall preach independence all over the U. S. wherever I go.”

Austin’s proposed flag was never made, but his original sketch of the flag is kept at the Dolph Briscoe Center for American History at the University of Texas at Austin. (©
