Color Guard Protocol

The following protocol, based on the priority of God, Country and State, will be followed during the Texian Legacy Association Color Guard Ceremony. At the beginning of the ceremony, God is the first to be honored through the invocation, then our country and then our state through the posting of the colors and pledges of allegiance.

"Honor the Texas flag; I pledge allegiance to thee, Texas, one state under God, one and indivisible." Program
