This flag was created by replacing the Eagle in the center of the Mexican tricolor with the year "1824." This referred to the 1824 Constitution of Mexico, which had previously granted autonomous local rule to the Texans.

In 1835, Mexican hardliners under president Santa Anna created a new constitution that allowed for a strong centralized government. Violence and secession movements immediately erupted in numerous Mexican states.

This was the first flag approved for use by rebel forces by a legislative body in Texas. In 1835, the Texan provisional government approved the use of this flag as an Ensign for privateers preying on Mexican commerce.

In 1860 it was alleged that the flag flew at the Alamo. It is now usually referred to as the Alamo flag, even though there is no proof it flew at the Battle of the Alamo.

3'x5' flags are 3ft x 5ft, 36in. by 60in, 91cm by 152cm, 1yard by 1.7yard. This is the most common size flag you see hanging on porches, small flag poles, hanging at festivals, and inside of bars and restaurants.
