The Gonzales Flag, originally designed in 1835, is making a comeback today. The flag traces its origins to a minor skirmish, the Battle of Gonzales, during the Texas revolution. The Mexican government had originally given a small cannon to the colony of Gonzales to protect itself against raids by Comanche Indians six years earlier. During the revolution, Mexico was set on taking the cannon back. The people of Gonzales successfully resisted the Mexican troops and created the handmade Gonzales flag to wave during the battle with the Mexicans, sending a message to Come and Take It!
