Come and Take It - 3'X5' Nylon Flag

This flag is also called the Gonzales Banner of 1835. In 1831 Mexican authorities provided the settlers of Gonzales with a cannon for their protection. As Santa Anna assumed more power and civil unrest began to spread, the Mexican military felt it unwise to leave the residents of Gonzales with a weapon so the Mexican Military Militia went to Gonzales to retrieve the cannon. The Texans responded by raising a banner that included a star over a cannon over the words "Come and Take it".

It is important to remember that since no physical evidence is available and the earliest written account dates decades after the flag was used, it is almost impossible to know the exact cannon design and coloring of the Gonzales Banner. 100% Nylon for long-lasting outdoor use.
