Stylized re-imagining of the legendary Texan "Come and Take It" flag, with a Rhodesian twist.
The original flag design was fashioned together by a motley group of "Texians" resisting a Mexican Army attempt at seizing a cannon in the vicinity of the little colony of Gonzales. On that day in 2 October 1835, the first shots of the Texas Revolution was fired and the Mexican Army withdrew after realizing the Texans would not give up their little bronze cannon. The original design emblazoned with a representation of the cannon and a taunt borrowed from antiquity, quickly became a symbol of Texas resistance. To this day, it remains an important part of both Texan and American history as a symbol of stubborn defiance against tyrants - particularly those of the gun grabbing variety.
The Rhodesian heritage that continues to inspire us here at Fireforce Ventures bears many parallels to the experiences of the Texan Rebels. To celebrate our own arrival in the great state of Texas, we are offering this morale patch to pay homage to our own company heritage and the our new home. Featuring motifs of the Rhodesian Army lion silhouette, the famous FN FAL service rifle, superimposed onto a Rhodesian Brushstroke backing, we dare tyrants to "come and take it".
Produced in the standard 2x3" size with hook velcro backing, identical in specification to milspec flag patches.
