Gonzales Come and Take It Battle Flag Framed
Celebrate early Texas struggles with one of the Gonzales Come and Take It Battle Flag Framed in your Texas office or western home decor, part of our framed Texas flags collection. Designed and painted by Evaline DeWitt and Cynthia Burns, it is now celebrated as one of the first battle flags.
From the first shots fired at the town of Gonzales in September 1835 until the defeat of Santa Anna’s men at San Jacinto on April 21, 1836, the Texas forces fought under a number of battle flags. The Gonzales battle flag is generally acknowledged as the first of these flags. Although no original flag exists today, accounts from that era describe the cannon and lone star with the words Come and Take It inscribed.
By the time of the Texas War of Independence, the Mexican government had proved unwilling to provide adequate representation to the young Texas territory. Texas settlers were rebuffed in their attempts to secure a political solution. This banner was finally raised over the town of Gonzales on October 2, 1835.
This Gonzales flag is made from cotton measuring 24 x 36 inch inches. The cannon, star and letters are actually pieces of cotton fabric (appliques) that are sewn onto the flag with an embroidered satin stitch around the edges. The flag comes in a your choice of frames: from natural barnwood or a custom stained dark barnwood frame for an even more formal Texas home decor or business office setting. We have also added these in a larger 3 x 5 foot flag in frame, wonderful to proudly display your Texas heritage!
Gonzales Come and Take It Battle Flag Framed Details
Our barnwood frames are made from recycled aged wood. The coloring of the old wood combined with the fabric of the cotton flag produces a one of a kind textured piece. Glass is not included in these framed items so that the detail and contrast are more visible. (Note: We do not provide glass coverings however space is available within the frame to have glass inserted after purchase.) Overall dimensions of the outside frames: 28″ x 38″ (2×3) and 37″ x 61″ (3×5).

Hi Keith, We love the way these stitched cotton flags look with the reclaimed wood frame. Bill
I love the flag and I love the look but the frame was poorly constructed. I ordered two flags and both frames had issues.
Sorry you received these in the condition shown in the picture. Actually, that looks like damage in shipment. We always do a quality control check after we stretch and assemble each framed flag. Please give us a shout if we can help you get these repaired! Bill
This was a Christmas present to a serious history buff and the framed “Come and take it” flag was a hit!
We appreciate your kind remarks. Hope you have a very happy new year! Regards, Bill
