Texas did not officially become a state until 1845, but their journey to an official state flag started some time before that. In December of 1838, Texas Senator William H. Wharton produced a bill for the Texas Congress that concerned an official flag for the Republic of Texas. The president of the Republic of Texas, Mirabeau B. Lamar, approved the bill and signed the flag into action on January 25th, 1839. Two men, Dr. Charles B. Steward and Peter Krag, are often credit with the design and creation of this flag. However, there is no proof that either of these men had a hand in the design of the flag and the flag's creator is unknown. On December 29th of 1845, The Republic of Texas joined the Union of the United States of America and on February 19th of 1846, all of the power of the Republic of Texas transferred to the State of Texas. Throughout all of these changes, the flag representing Texas (both the republic and the state) remained the same. In 1933, Mrs. Sarah T. Hughes (who would go on to become the first female federal judge in Texas) introduced a bill to Texas Legislature that provided guidelines for the display of the Texas flag and a pledge of allegiance to the Texas flag.
