ALAMO FLAG ... the New Orleans Greys Flag. The 4-foot by 3-foot silk banner emblazoned with the words “FIRST COMPANY OF TEXAN VOLUNTEERS FROM NEW ORLEANS” is possibly the only remaining flag in existence known to have flown during the legendary Battle of the Alamo. It is displayed in Mexico City where it was taken as war booty following the famous 1836 battle. Efforts to have the flag returned to the state of Texas have been unsuccessful.
