Texas Flags and Banners

The Texas flag was originally created for the Republic of Texas, and is one of the two state flags that previously served as a national flag. Each part of the flag of Texas symbolizes one of Texas’ core principles: blue for valor, white for purity, and red for all the men and women who have died in service to the state. Texas’ nickname, “The Lone Star State,” refers to the iconic, white star on the Texas state flag and represents unity. Fly your Texas flags and banners with pride, whether you're rooting for your favorite sports team, or showing your spirit with a college flag.

Our Texas flags and banners are made with high-quality nylon, cotton, or heavy-duty polyester in a variety of sizes. Don’t have a flagpole? Try our Texas flag kits that include your flag, pole and bracket.

Information and history of the state of Texas

Several nations had ruled over the Texas territory before becoming a state. Spain was the first European country to claim the area of Texas. France held a short-lived colony in Texas. Mexico controlled the territory until 1836 when Texas won its independence, becoming an independent Republic. In 1845 it joined the United States as the 28th state.

Texas is nicknamed the Lone Star State to signify Texas as a former independent republic and as a reminder of the state's struggle for independence from Mexico. The "Lone Star" can be found on the Texas state flag and on the Texas state seal today. The origin of the state name, Texas, is from the word, "Tejas", which means 'friends' in the Caddo language.

Possessing enormous natural resources, Texas is a major agricultural state and an industrial giant. Texas leads all other states in such categories as oil, cattle, sheep, and cotton. Texas ranches and farms also produce poultry and eggs, dairy products, greenhouse and nursery products, wheat, hay, rice, sugar cane, and peanuts, and a variety of fruits and vegetables.
