    Yeah, that flag that you kept insisting upon using is called the Colonel James Long Flag, aka the “Jane Long” (all red), aka the Texas Navy Ensign, and was only a de facto flag that was used intermittently for only three years. Not to be confused with the Current National flag of Liberia, which has only 11 stripes compared to 13, this one was NEVER an official flag. You could’ve used the Burnet Flag or the actual Lone Star Flag, but you didn’t, and for that I am beyond critical of this video.

Till you realize all the Federal military bases and spending that happens and how you would replace that.
