Did Charles Stewart Design the Texas Flag?
"Did Charles Stewart design the Lone Star Flag? Though it cannot be said that he did not, the evidence presented so far to support this claim is certainly not persuasive."—Charles A. Spain, Jr.
Drs. Robert Maberry and Whitney Smith, both preeminent vexillologists who have studied the origins of the Texas flag, provided letters in spring 2009 flatly refuting the claim by Stewart's partisans that he was the flag's designer. The letters were provided in response to claims made by supporters of legislation to designate Feb. 6 as an annual "recognition day" for Stewart that would "be regularly observed by appropriate and patriotic programs in the public schools and other places[.]"
