The Pledge of Allegiance to the Texas Flag



"Honor the Texas Flag;
I Pledge Allegiance to thee,
Texas
One state under God,
One and Indivisible."

Texas is a country of its own. There is no particular way to describe it because all of it is so different. It's the vast amount of variety that makes Texas what it is. There is something here for everyone. Mountains, plains, forests, coast, desert, canyons, snow, sunshine. It's not only the physical attributes and the people that make Texas what it is. The rich amount of history that has occurred here has had a major impact on making Texas what it is.
If someone were to ask me why I love Texas so much, I wouldn't be able to explain it all. It's a combination of the people, the landscape, the weather, the history...the beauty of the state. Many people would not be able to understand this but fellow Texans can. I guess it's a Texas thing.
In order to help those who are not fortunate enough to be Texans and for Texans like me who like seeing things like this in print, I've listed several of the special things about Texas.

Unique Texas Facts

Texas Declaration of Independence

State Symbols

These are the six flags that have waved over Texas:

Republic of Texas: 1836-1846
United States: 1846-1861 & 1865-Present
Confederacy: 1861-1865



Texas etiquette is about as important as anything n the world. Naturally, there are exceptions, but chances are these people weren't born and raised in Texas!
