Recognize this?

I've seen a few people that have uploaded this or a variant. Do y'all know what this flag represents?

Battle of Gonzales Flag

(hint: It's a Texas thing)

It was from the Battle of Gonzales, the first action in the War of Independence for the Republic of Texas. Mexico wanted a cannon they provided to the town returned as relations were breaking down between Mexico and the American settlers in Texas. The militia of Gonzales created this flag to let the Mexican troops sent to obtain the cannon be aware of their position.

It's kind of the Gadsden Flag for Texas.
