It was 174 years ago that President of the Republic of Texas Mirabeau B. Lamar signed a bill authorizing the current Texas flag to be the official flag for the Republic of Texas.  “The flag has not changed since then and it is the oldest state flag in the United States,” said Thomas Green, Past State President of the Sons of the Republic of Texas.  Green gave spectators a history lesson on all of the past Texas flags, as well as an overview of Lamar established the official flag for the State of Texas.

Members of the Sons of the Republic of Texas dressed in period costume and fired a salute to Lamar with their black powder rifles said Richmond spokesman Master Sergeant Lowell Neinast.  Fort Bend County Precinct 1 Commissioner Richard Morrison gave a speech on the life of Mirabeau Lamar and his history in Richmond.  Spectators at the event included Richmond City Manager, Terri Vela, Assistant City Manager, Glen Gilmore, City Commissioners Gary Gillen and Bill Dostal, and others.

The City of Richmond is full of history and plays a significant role in Texas history.  Lamar’s gravesite in Morton Cemetery is located on land where Santa Anna’s Troops traveled while one their way to San Jacinto.

City Manager Terri Vela said, “The history of Richmond lives on and we look forward to incorporating that history into the future of our city.”
