JEW599-A Tie Tack    Nickel plated with blue enamel background 1/2" tie tack (Hat Pins, Lapel Pins) with clutch back of The Lorenzo de Zavala Flag of 1836.

The Texas flag described as a white star on a blue field with the letters T E X A S around the star points is a vexillological myth. This is the so-called "Lorenzo de Zavala" flag, which Zavala allegedly designed in March 1836 at Washington-on-the-Brazos during the convention that drafted the Texas Declaration of Independence from Mexico and the original Texas Constitution. Zavala was a notable figure in Mexican history--he was one of the three drafters of the original 1824 Mexican Constitution.
