The First Flag of the Republic
First Flag of the RepublicThis flag was adopted in May of 1836, at the convention that wrote the constitution for the newborn republic. The design is attributed to Vice President Lorenzo de Zavala.
The lone star appears again, with TEXAS spelled out between the points, in case anyone should wonder what that single star represents. The same design would appear on Texas "red back" currency.

The paper is acid free, cold press cotton watercolor with an elegant ever-so-lightly-textured finish. This surface allows the inks to 'bite', reproducing the shading and tonality of the original map vividly, beautifully, and exactly.
The inks are guaranteed color-fast for 80 years, which means you won't need to lay out the extra money for UV glass. You can hang your map in direct sun and it will be just as bright when they are passed on to the next generation it is the day it ships.
It's an instant heirloom. Get yours before they're gone...and get one to give to a friend. He'll owe you!
