The Goliad Super-Poly 3x5' Flag

One week after the first shot of the Texas Revolution was fired at Gonzales, Texans led by George Collinsworth and Ben Milam took the offensive and captured the important Mexican fortress at Goliad. In Spanish these forts were called presidios, and they were originally built to protect a nearby settlement or missionary outpost.

More than two months before elected delegates from throughout Texas met at Washington on the Brazos and voted to break from Mexico, almost 100 settlers at Goliad expressed similar sentiments, signing their own declaration of independence. As the document was signed, a flag designed by Captain Phillip Dimmitt was raised over the presidio.

This flag symbolizes the Texans' willingness to face any sacrifice to win their freedom. The presidio at Goliad, established in 1749, was one of the most important military positions in the Mexican province of Texas. After the fall of the Alamo, it was also the site of the massacre of Colonel Fannin's men after their defeat and capture at Colleto. The presidio has been meticulously preserved and visitors there today get the truest feel for life in early Texas.

 This flag’s material is a filament, warp knit polyester, producing a flag of good durability and color retention. This polyester material has an open weave that allows the flag to fly in very light breezes. Featuring white Polyester Duck heading and brass grommets.

Texas!

I fly flags daily. The Goliad flag is the newest in my collection of Texas flags. Also got a new Texas flag at the same time. Bright and beautiful!

Goliad flag too cheap

The flag is too flimsy to fly at all. Would rather spend more and get heavier material.
