A Houston-area legislator is seeking the return, at least temporarily, of the only flag known to have flown at the Alamo in 1836.

State Rep. John Zerwas said the Alamo's Long Barrack Museum would be an ideal place to display the New Orleans Greys flag, which has been housed at the Museo Nacional de Historia in Mexico City.

“That would seem the most appropriate place for it,” said Zerwas, R-Richmond. “It would be a really neat thing for Texas.”

Despite many larger issues in Austin, Zerwas said he agreed at a constituent's urging to seek the flag's return.
