The state flag is the 1839 national flag of the Republic of Texas.
The flag consists of a rectangle with a width to length ratio of two to three containing a blue vertical stripe one-third the entire length of the flag wide, and two equal horizontal stripes, the upper stripe white, the lower red, each two-thirds the entire length of the flag long. There is a white, regular five-pointed star in the center of the blue stripe, oriented so that one point faces upward, and of such a size that the diameter of a circle passing through the five points of the star is equal to three-fourths the width of the blue stripe.
The red, white, and blue of the
state flag stand, respectively, for bravery, purity, and loyalty.
