The Lone Star Flag was adopted in 1839, and flew over the Republic of Texas before statehood (1845). It was a powerful symbol to the south, as Texas was a Confederate state (1861-1865).

The flag was carried in major campaigns during the Civil War by Hood‘s Texas Brigade, Burnet‘s Battalion, etc., at Seven Pines/Gaines Farm, Antietam, Gettysburg, Port Hudson and many others. It was always carried with the Southern Cross or St. Andrews Cross Flag. The Lone Star Flag, in its present form, is a Confederate battle flag.

Heritage thieves are looting and removing Confederate statues, plaques, etc., aided by treacherous state and local government officials, without the consent of the governed. Will they remove the Lone Star Flag because of its Civil War significance?

The American Flag (Old Glory) and the national anthem are also under attack as evidenced by participants shamefully demonstrating hatred and disrespect by kneeling and raising clinched fists during ceremonies at sports events. Will both flags be removed by cultural cleansing? Conquest of these flags will be the ultimate trophy for heritage thieves.

Texans must rally to the flags to prevent their confiscation. They must mobilize for action to preserve, protect and defend our beloved Lone Star Flag and Old Glory.
