Austin Flag, Red and Green

Mottos in center

"Where Liberty dwells there is my country."
"WASHINGTON-In his example there is safety"

In place of the star, put the sun with the head of Washington
in the center, and rays, representing the light of liberty, radiating
all round-outside of this and above, put the motto "Where
Liberty dwells there is my country"---change the stripes from
green to blue & have exactly thirteen of them [text scribbled
over]-the stripes will then be blue and white-change the ground
of the Jack in the corner from white to yellow, or leave it white
