History of the Burnet flag
David G. Burnet was the 1st President of the Republic of Texas, elected as “interim president” March 17, 1836 – October 22, 1836, and was responsible for designing the 1st flag of the republic. This flag served as Texas’ national flag for all purposes except the Navy until the current Texas flag was adopted on January 25, 1839.
Cotton flags feature a very heavy, luxurious look and feel. They are commonly used indoors because of their old-world, handcrafted appearance but can also be flown outside, although they are not very durable or fade resistant with prolonged exposure to the outdoor elements. Cotton flags are also suitable for tea staining and/or framing and hanging indoors. The star is appliqued on both sides of the flag.
