History & Meaning of the Come & Take It Flag

In January 1831, Green DeWitt requested to borrow a six-pound bronze cannon for the defense of Gonzales, Texas, from the Mexican municipality of Bexar, which was given on the condition that it be returned when asked for. In 1835, the colony of Gonzales refused to return the cannon, so Mexican forces were sent with orders to retrieve it. This would escalate into the Battle of Gonzales, the first land battle in the Texas Revolution, leading to Texan independence from Mexico and eventual annexation by the United States.

The Come & Take It flag was created by two women from Gonzales, Caroline Zumwalt and Eveline DeWitt. On the flag is a drawing of the same cannon that the battle was fought over, along with the phrase “Come and take it,” which had been sent to the Mexican government in response to the request for the cannon's return.
