Provenance of flag is unknown. All I know is that it was bought by a friend over Ebay. The material appears to be of wool flannel. I don't know what a flag hand is. It is not the Guerrero Permanente flag--but the 2d Texas Infantry defeated the Guerrero troops at San Jacinto. Company K of the 2d were known as the Houston Guards.
