This flag was flying over the meeting hall at Washington on the Brazos on March 1, 1836, where the first Constitutional Convention met for the express purpose of declaring the independence of Texas from Mexico. Sarah Dodson designed the first “Lone Star” flag for her husband Archelaus, a member of Capt. Andrew Robinson’s company of Texas volunteers. The flag showed a blue field with a five-point white star next to a white and red stripe. The green color of Mexico was not included. The Robinson Company marched under this flag in the Siege and Battle of Béxar.
