Gonzales Banner of 1835

"Come and take it" was a slogan used in the Texas Revolution in 1835. In March 1831, a Lieutenant in the Mexican Armygave a small cannon to the colony of San Antonio, which was then transported to Gonzales, Texas and later was the object of Texas pride. At the Battle of Gonzales (the first battle of the Texas Revolution), a small group of Texans resisted Mexican forces who had orders to seize the cannon. As a symbol of defiance, the Texans fashioned a flag containing the phrase "come and take it" along with a black star and an image of the cannon which they had received six years earlier from Mexico.
