Displays a replica of banner unfurled Dec. 20, 1835, at signing of Declaration of Independence of Texas from tyranny of Santa Anna's regime in Mexico. That declaration, drafted by staunch early patriots Philip Dimitt and Ira Ingram, and signed by 92 citizens and soldiers, was later suppressed as premature, but it forecast coming events.

A battle flag used 11 weeks earlier (and sometimes called "First Flag of Texas") lacked the support of a formal Declaration of Independence. The Goliad Flag also waved over an army - one in possession of fort at La Bahia.

Incise on base: Sponsored by W. M. Neyland citizen of Goliad, 1968
Year Placed1968
Placed ByTexas State Historical Survey Committee
