Come and Take It

The swivel cannon was mounted to a blockhouse in Gonzales and later was the object of Texas pride.
As a symbol of defiance, the Texians had fashioned a flag containing the phrase "come and take it," along with a black star and an image of the cannon that they had received four years earlier from Mexican officials. This was the same message that was sent to the Mexican government when they told the Texians to return the cannon; lack of compliance with the initial demands led to the failed attempt by the Mexican military to forcefully take back the cannon.
