It was most famously used during the Texas Revolution in 1835 at the Battle of Gonzales. The battle was over a cannon that the Mexican authorities had given the town to protect themselves from frequent Comanche raids. When the state started to revolt, the Mexican troops asked for the cannon back to which they refused. During the battle, the Texans raised a homemade white banner with an image of the cannon painted in black in the center, over the words 'Come and Take It'
This historical Come and Take It flag is available in three different fabrics and includes canvas heading and brass grommets. For indoor or outdoor use. Please Note: The large grommets on the cotton flags do not work with the EZ Mount rings. Instead we suggest the use of our Never Furls for hanging on poles indoor or out. Made in USA
