"FLAG OF VICTORIA COUNTY"

"This flag was first unfurled October 28,1936 on the occasion of the Texas Centennial celebration and commemoration of the 112th anniversary of the founding of Victoria in 1824 by Martin de Leon. It was designed by Postmaster Leopold Morris and painted by Sister M. Fidelia of Nazareth Academy. It portrays Alvar de Nunez de Vaca, Spanish explorer, the first white traveler in Texas (1528) who lived among the Indians in the vicinity of Victoria; Robert Cavalier de La Salle, French explorer whose colony, founded in 1685 in Victoria County, was the first white settlement in Texas; and De Leon's cattle brand, said to have been the brand of the royal family of Spain and the oldest in Texas in point of origin. The 'E' and 'J' connected stand for 'Espiritus de Jesus' or the Spirit of Jesus. This emblem was contributed by Harold Johnston, grandson of Leopold Morris."
