The original Texas state flag was known as the "National Standard of Texas" and was approved by the President of the Texas Republic, Sam Houston, on December 10, 1836. This flag looked different than the Texas flag we know today. It offered a golden five point star that was centered on an azure backdrop which resembled the sky on a clear day. This flag officially came down on January 25, 1883. Senator William H. Wharton had introduced a bill on December 28, 1838 which described the "Lone Star Flag" and eventually the Texas flag we see today. The Texas Congress passed this on January 21, 1883 and was approved days later by then Texas President Mirabeau B. Lamar. The History books show that this was roughly six years before Texas became a state in the United States of America. The early designs of the Texas state flag are attributed to many; however it is not formally known who designed the Lone Star Flag. In 1845 when Texas admitted to the Union, its flag came with. Officially, there was no recognized Texas flag until 1933’s Flag Act. This legislation was very precise about the location of the lone star and the colors of the Texas flag which were to be white, blood red, and azure blue. No true standard for these colors existed at this time, thus the colors slowly shifted into the patriotic ones it is known for now. The colors of the modern Texas state flag are pure white, old glory red, and old glory blue and are shared by the flag of the United State of America. The Texas state flag contains a blue vertical strip that is one-third of its length wide, an upper strip of white and a lower of red each making up the remaining two-thirds of the length. A white star with the traditional five points is located in the center of the blue strip. This Texas state flag is proudly displayed by millions of Texans and is truly a symbol of their states heritage.
