Original Drawing of the Charles B. Stewart Lone Star Flag of Texas

Original Drawing of the Lone Star Flag of Texas by Charles B. Stewart

From the Charles Bellinger Stewart Papers, Texas State Library and Archives.  If you look closely at the top of the page you can see the signature of Mirabeau B. Lamar, President of the Republic of Texas, appoving the design.  This was the original drawing of the Lone Star Flag of Texas.  If you look to the right of the flag, you can also see very faintly the original drawing of the Texas Seal.  Stewart's children colored in the flag at some point after it was approved.  Peter Krag merely prepared professional drawings of C. B. Stewart's design.  Click here to return to the Origin of the Lone Star Flag by David L. Martin.
