As the great 20th century philosopher Lyle Lovett once said: You may not be from Texas—but Texas wants you anyway! In that spirit, let's discuss the best flags for the Lone Star State. Looking for a Texas flag made in the USA? A heavy-duty outdoor flag that can take the Texas weather? Or a combo pack of Texas plus American flag? Here are the ones we'd recommend.

FYI: As a native of North Texas, I've been reviewing and rating products for families, children and the home since 1994. To keep things independent, I don't take money or freebies from brands I review. This work is 100% reader-supported, y'all.

Best Made in the USA

Bright colors! Looks sharp!
Loved this Texas flag, made by a Virginia-based manufacturer. UV resistant dyes and appliqued star. Even comes in its own box! Good for indoors or outdoors. And not made in China.

Best Made in the USA: Annin Flagmakers Model 145260 Texas State Flag

Did you know that many Texas flags sold today are made in . . . China? Well, as flags go, that dog won’t hunt.

Sure, there’s nothing wrong with flags made in China—but if you are going to fly the flag of the Lone Star State, why not make it one made in the USA?

Based in Virginia, Annin Flag Makers traces its roots to 1847, which is just two years after Texas became a US state. This flag is made by American workers in an American factory . . .  Annin has manufacturing facilities in Virginia (good) and Ohio (we’ll forgive them).

Quality is very good. Here’s more:

What We Liked

• Bright colors!

• Large 4′ x 6′ size.

• Arrives in its own box—great for gifts.

• Heavy weight nylon fabric is 200 denier.

• UV resistant dyes. 

• Appliqued star.

What Needs Work

• No embroidery. Yes, some Texas flags have an embroidered star, which looks nice. But this one passes the look test in our book!

UV resistant dyes prevent fading
We liked the reinforced hem and lightweight nylon fabric—it'll fly in the lightest breeze. But it isn't designed for heavy wind areas. And its made in China. Looks nice on a wall, however.

Best Outdoor Flag: Annin Flagmakers Model 145305 Texas State Flag

If you are looking for a Texas flag tough enough to handle Texas weather, here’s our pick: Annin’s model 145305. Yes, this flag looks similar to the flag recommended at the top of this article . . . but it is a different model with more beefy specs.

Specifically, this flag is made from Annin’s Tough-Tex fabric, an appropriately named heavier weave fabric designed to handle weather. What weather?  High wind, hail, dust devils and just about anything Mother Nature can throw at it in Texas. And we know she doesn’t hold anything back.

What We Liked

• UV treated dyes to prevent fading in the hot West Texas sun.

• Sewn stripes.

• Made in the USA.

• 4 rows of double needle lockstitch hem keeps it from fraying.

• Long lasting.

What Needs Work

• Star is appliqued, not embroidered. This doesn’t make a big difference, but we know some folks like the embroidered look.
