Flags Over Texas

August 03, 1986

While Hank Tovar is correct concerning the upside-down status of the Texas flag in the Senor Naugles commercial (Calendar Letters, July 20), both he and the Naugles people are incorrect in assuming that the Star and Bars ever flew over the Alamo.

The flag raised over the Alamo by its defenders was the Mexican tricolor with the Eagle-Serpent-Cactus crest replaced by the date "1824," commemorating the Constitution of 1824, which theoretically gave the Texicana self-determination.
