Question from a Brit to fellow fans across 'The Pond'.

What flag is the 'Flag of the Fallen' representing? It's a blue flag with a yellow, five-pointed star right in the middle of it.

I'm an Americanophile and know a fair bit about the later period of the West and a bit about Alamo lore... but I'm drawing a blank here. I know about the famous black and white 'Come And Take It' cannon flag, and was rather hoping that might show up here, in a mission where the baddies are Santa Anna's men. I know it's not the 1824 one either or the official Texan flag.

I assume it's a Texian thing rather than a Mexican one? One of the encounters mentions 'an older flag' too, so I wondered if they were connected.

Marcus is it this one?



If so it is David G. Burnet Flag (12/10/1836-1/24/1839)- Adopted as the first national flag by the First Congress of the Republic of Texas

Perfect! I knew someone would recognise it! Looks like I have some history reading to do!

Many thanks.

Ha ha ha.
The answer came from someone who is from across another pond than expected...?

I've been playing with an Alternate History timeline for SoB and been reading the Texas / Mexican history recently so I remembered a page with various flags on. Glad to help.
