The Alamo Flag - February 1836
Flown at the Alamo
The tri-color banner with an eagle perched in a prickly pear and devouring a rattle snake was the flag of the Mexican Republic under the Constitution of 1824. It was to that flag and constitution that Texian immigrants pledged their loyalty.
When the dictator Santa Anna abolished the constitution, Texian officer Philip Dimmit replaced the eagle with "1824" to make it clear where the allegiance of Texas lay. The provisional government ordered this flag to be flown by all vessels of the Texas Navy. Tradition says this was the flag flown by Travis during the siege of the Alamo.
