La Christiania

I had to make two seperate versions to get the star like you want, as a 5 pointer cannot stay proper if roatated 90degrees,

here is the flag as a flag

here it is as a banner for hanging on the wall of your presidental palace.

why does that make me think “Alamo” or “Texas”?

I don’t think about the Alamo at all when I see that flag. Anyone with a basic knowledge of one of the most important events in Western Civilization would know that only one flag for certain flew over the Alamo:" the flag of the New Orleans Greys. This flag, which bore the inscription “1st Company of Volunteers from New Orleans” was given to Captain Thomas H. Breece’s unit when it passed through San Agustine on its way to San Antonio." http://www.thealamo.org/history/campaigns.htm#nineteen

The http://www.worldstatesmen.org/tx-dodson.gif
“Dodson Lone Star” flag was most often used from 1 Mar 1836 - 10 Dec 1836, and the Alamo fell on March 6. However, the Alamo defenders were pretty much cut off from everyone else, being under a siege and all, and probably didn’t hear about it until later.

Many people who have seen the movie, Thirteen Days to Glory (IMO better than John Wayne’s), recognize this as the flag flown at the Alamo: http://www.worldstatesmen.org/us-alamo_Nov1836.gif
“The Mexican Federal flag of 1824”
The “1824” refers to the Constitution of 1824, which Santa Anna disregarded. The defenders of the Alamo may have flown that flag, as it was in common use at that time. However, it may have never been flown at all at the Alamo. The common perception of the Alamo garrison is that they fought to restore the Constitution of 1824 (and when Texas independenced itself from Mexico four days before, gives us the “They died for a Republic whose existence they never knew” reverent sap). “In reality, the garrison was pro-independence had even sent two delegates to the Constitutional Convention at Washington-on-the-Brazos to insure that their vote for independence was counted.”

I reckon you’re a Yankee, so I’ll just give you the benefit of the doubt and say you got so confused trying to tell the difference between Chile’s flag and the Flag of Texas you saw three bands of red and called it our state.

If you were to add on a few more stars and put them in a circle on that flag, you’d get yourself the Confederate ‘Stars and Bars.’

Ok GB, here is a flag querrie for ya,

what is the Confederate flag called teh Stainless Banner, I have no Idea what it looks like but as I understand it is the flag thta was to have been the national flag of the Confederacy once she was free, I have been told it was a version of the Battle flag with the red field replaced with a grey or white field and a red stripe added within the blue bars, Ill post a image of what I am describig in a few minutes as soon as I photoshop it up.

ok nevermind, I did a google search for the battle flag and decided to look for stainless banner and got this,

last time I tried to google it it gave me no answer.l

here is the one I thought it was

um, actually no GB, I am simply given the impression of Alamo or Texas or Texan whenever I see that flag. Whether or not it is something else, that is indeed the impression it gave me.

Damn I would hate to have you as a history teacher… go off on a tangent at the slightest hint that someone may possibly be thinking something you don’t think…
