This is a vintage Texas state flag, produced by Annin Flag Company in the 1930s. The flag is sewn and measures 3 ft x 5 ft.
Texas passed its Flag Act in 1933, describing the exact specifications for its flag. The Flag Act named blood red, azure blue, and white as the official colors, and outlined the exact location of the lone white star. The white star resides on a vertical blue stripe at the hoist. The remainder of the flag is two horizontal stripes, white over red.
Flag is in good condition. Some light toning and scattered stains, but overall very attractive flag. Loss to sections of white and red fly-end stripes, which have been stabilized by a conservator prior to framing. The three separate sections of blue, white, and red fabric are sewn together. The lone star is sewn with a zig-zag stitching pattern. Heavy canvas hoist with two grommets at top and bottom. Faded old ink stamp from manufacturer on top hoist.
Archivally and artfully presented in a custom-built black and gold frame. Framed dimensions: 46" H x 69" W x 3" D.
