TSLAC 1991/9-3
Maritime Auxiliary Flags

During the Republic of Texas era, Texans already believed that their country would become a great commercial power. Although the fledgling republic could not afford to build docks or harbors, the Texas Congress did commission this set of maritime flags in 1839. The designer was Peter Krag, who also designed the Lone Star Flag. Left to right: Revenue Service Flag, Pilot’s Flag, and Coastal Trade Flag. It is not known if any of these flags were actually created.
