Description
The Lone Star symbol has become synonymous with Texas and can be found all across the state, most notably on the state flag and the State Seal of Texas. The Lone Star was originally used as a symbol during the Texas Revolution, when Texas fought to gain independence from Mexico in 1835. At the time the flag of the Mexican state of Coahuila y Tejas featured the same three vertical stripes of green, white and red, that the flag of Mexico sports today, but instead of the eagle with the snake in its beak there were two stars in the center symbolizing the two provinces. During the Texas Revolution various flags were used, but many carried the theme of one lone star to symbolize Texas' independence. In March of 1836 the convention that drafted the Texas Declaration of Independence accepted the first official Flag of the Republic of Texas. The flag consisted of a white star on a blue background with each letter of Texas in between a point of the star. Ever since then the Lone Star has represented Texas' independence and honored their time spend as a Republic. The second entry in out Capitol Illuminated series, which compliments the long running Texas Capitol Ornament Collection, celebrates this long heritage and is finished in 24-karat gold with a replaceable LED light that will light up your tree! Estimated battery life is 100 hours, replacement bulbs sold separately. All proceeds support continued preservation of the Texas State Capitol and educational projects. Polish with a soft, dry cloth. Made in USA.
