This Texas graphic does not appear to be listed on the U-haul site.
This is a classic supergraphic which is not listed on the U-haul site.
When U-haul was contacted about this, this was their reply:
"Thank you for contacting us with your question regarding our Texas Classic SuperGraphics. Unfortunately some of the older Classic graphics had copyright issues so we are not allowed to place them on our website at this time. However, you can use the SuperGraphic as it is legit - we are just unable to place the image on uhaul.com."
THE STATE FLAG OF TEXAS:
The Flag of the State of Texas is defined by law as follows:
The state flag consists of a rectangle with a width to length ratio of two to three containing: (1) a blue vertical stripe one-third the entire length of the flag wide, and two equal horizontal stripes, the upper stripe white, the lower red, each two-thirds the entire length of the flag long; and (2) a white, regular five-pointed star in the center of the blue stripe, oriented so that one point faces upward, and of such a size that the diameter of a circle passing through the five points of the star is equal to three-fourths the width of the blue stripe. The red and blue of the state flag are the same colors used in the United States flag.
The Texas flag is known as the "Lone Star Flag" (giving rise to the state's nickname "The Lone Star State"). This flag was introduced to the Congress of the Republic of Texas on December 28, 1838, by Senator William H. Wharton. It was adopted on January 25, 1839 as the final national flag of the Republic of Texas.
Montgomery county is officially the birthplace of the Texas flag. The actual design of the Lone Star Flag remained a mystery until the Texas House of Representatives passed House Resolution 1123 in 1997 commemorating Montgomery County as the flag's official birthplace. Dr. Charles B. Stewart is credited with creating the inspirational banner of the State of Texas.
REGARDING THE CATTLE SHOWN:
Texas leads the nation in livestock production. Cattle is the state's most valuable agricultural product.
