That's a well known flag in Texas history with an image of a cannon that the Mexican army wanted returned from the Texans. The Texans basically said, " You".

"In early January 1831, Green DeWitt wrote to Ramón Músquiz, the top political official of Bexar, and requested armament for defense of the colony of Gonzales. This request was granted by delivery of a small used cannon. The small bronze cannon was received by the colony and signed for on March 10, 1831, by James Tumlinson, Jr.[5] The swivel cannon was mounted to a blockhouse in Gonzales, Texas and later was the object of Texas pride. At the minor skirmish known as the Battle of Gonzales—the first battle of the Texas Revolution against Mexico—a small group of Texians successfully resisted the Mexican forces who had orders from Col. Domingo de Ugartechea to seize their cannon. As a symbol of defiance, the Texans had fashioned a flag containing the phrase "come and take it" along with a black star and an image of the cannon which they had received six years earlier from Mexican officials—this was the same message that was sent to the Mexican government when they told the Texans that they had to return their cannon—failure to comply with the Mexicans' original demands led to the failed attempt by the Mexican military to forcefully take back the cannon.[6]

Replicas of the original flag can be seen in the Texas State Capitol, the Bob Bullock Texas State History Museum, the University of Texas at El Paso Library, the Marine Military Academy headquarters building, the Hockaday School Hoblitzelle Auditorium, and in Perkins Library at Duke University."

Thanks Bevo! That's some good history. I thought it might be a cannon, but didn't see wheels.

Volunteered to corner work, going to give the hand a few more weeks before a track day. Did some riding Saturday and it felt good, even caught on with Gary in Mexico.

Not all cannons have wheels. This one was mounted on a swivel

Texas History, kids learn it when they are in 3rd grade. You need to not be so cheap and go to some museums.
