Goliad Texas and Liberty Battle Flag 3×5 Two Sided Heavy Sewn Polyester

This flag is a reproduction of what the Goliad Battle Flag also known as the Troutman Flag from the war for Texas independence might have looked like. The flag was presented to the Georgia Batallion of Permanent Volunteers by a young teenage girl named Joanna Troutman as they were passing through Knoxville Georgia on the way to Texas where they became part of General James Fannin’s provisional regiment. Miss Troutman also made the flag, hence the name “Troutman Flag”. There is some controversy among historians as to the exact verbiage that appeared on the flag, as the original flag was destroyed after the Goliad Massacre in 1836, however, it is believed by many historians to have been made of white silk with a single blue star in the center and bearing the motto “Ubi Libertas habitat, ibi nostra patria est” which is Latin for “where liberty dwells, there is our fatherland” on one side while “Texas and Liberty” appeared on the opposite side, although some historians believe the second side read “Liberty or Death”. This is one possible rendition of how the Troutman Flag may have looked.

This flag is made of two-ply polyester, which is the most durable material for those who fly their flag in windy conditions

  • Heavy-duty double-sided construction
  • Two separate flags sewn together back to back with a liner in between so the lettering doesn’t show through to the other side and the mottos can be read clearly on both sides
  • Fade-resistant
  • Embroidered lettering with a bead of embroidery outlining the appliqued star
  • Heavy canvas header with brass grommets
  • 4 rows of stitching on the fly end to prevent premature fraying
  • Flag size: 3’x5′
