Did you know...
... that today is Texas Admission Day? Texas became the 28th
state of the United States in 1845. Trivia fans: The official
state flag of Texas, called the Lone Star Flag, was adopted
when Texas was admitted. The colors represent bravery (red),
purity (white), and loyalty (blue). The large white star was first used on Texas flags in the 1830's during the battles
between Texas and Mexico.
