A former flag of Dallas, Texas (1916-1967), shows a silhouette of the state of Texas in white with the name "Dallas" and a small star marking its location on a field of red and blue divided horizontally. This flag was adopted in 1916, though it was not actually produced until 1954. It was used until the current flag was adopted in 1967.

The Texas Rangers are a professional baseball team located in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex, based in Arlington, Texas. The Rangers franchise is currently a member of the Western Division of Major League Baseball's American League. Since 1994, the Rangers have played in Globe Life Park in Arlington in Arlington, Texas. The team's name is borrowed from the famous law enforcement agency of the same name.
The franchise was established in 1961 as the Washington Senators, an expansion team awarded to Washington, D.C., after the city's first ballclub, the original Washington Senators, moved to Minnesota and became the Twins. After the 1971 season, the new Senators moved to Arlington, Texas, and debuted as the Rangers the following spring."
Their flag is a blue horizontal flag with the (new) logo (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Texas_Rangers_(baseball)#mediaviewer/File:Texas_Rangers.svg) in the middle, as seen here: 4.bp.blogspot.com/-LGYsTYdDzTI/UyU6AkRt52I/AAAAAAAAR54/OwhCOV0iujg/s1600/DSC05752.JPG (first flag from left to right) Source: travelsoframblingroses.blogspot.com/2014/03/texas-rangers-vs-colorado-rockies-march.html
