6 Flags over Texas

Six flags have flown over Texas in its history as a colonized/settled area, as six different nations have had sovereignty over the territory.

1. Spain: 1519-1685; 1690-1821. The original colonizers who somehow lost out to the French for 5 years in there.spain

2. France: 1685-1690. Not so impressive, France.france

3. Mexico: 1821-1836. Well, this one was famously hard fought.mexico

4. Texas as its own republic: 1836-1845. If you think we’re going to let the other states forget we once were our own country, you are sadly mistaken.republic

5. The Confederacy: 1861-1865. This is the one I always forget about, because duh.confed

6. The United States: 1845-1861; 1865-Present. I have to admit I find this flag a little cluttered, compared to the simplicity of the single-star Texas flag. usa
