Origin of the Texas Flag

Mr. David Martin made me aware this week that the photograph on the blog below was the Peter Krag draft of the Texas Flag rather than the original drawing by Dr. Charles Stewart of Montgomery.  He has a wonderful article on his blog found here.  Thanks to him, I am able to attach a photograph of the Stewart drawing.
