The Waco siege was a deadly 1993 siege of a Branch Davidians compound, by the US federal and Texas state law enforcement and military at the Mount Carmel Center ranch in the community of Elk, Texas, nine miles from Waco.

(I believe that the Branch Davidian flag is illustrated with a six-winged dragon or serpent.)
