Although MANY flags were purportedly used to identify “The Texas Republic”, The so-called “Emerald Green Flag” was seen as early as 1812-13. Former US Army Lieutenant Augustus MaGee was a Settler to Texas and first lead the fight to break away from The Imperial Mexican Government. He established his own flag. This flag was entirely green (and possibly reflected his Irish heritage). Capturing a local Governor, MaGee and his “Forces” captured and executed him. Mexican Forces would soon overwhelm this “rag tag Army” and execute them all (MaGee included).
