proposed royal banner of Tejas
I had a thought--and this is in many ways just an excuse for me to design a flag--what if the new young King decided to institute a new royal banner for his dynasty? To herald a new era in Tejas and all that? What do you think? The idea was to take the basic heraldric heritage of his family but use the Tejan flag colors. Zahir 09:46, 24 June 2007 (PDT)

Just a coincidence?

Is it a coincidence that his name is Jaun Carlos also? Misterxeight 19:54, 12 July 2008 (UTC)

You mean, the same as the current King of Spain over here? I believe so. Zahir 19:57, 12 July 2008 (UTC)
I've wondered that too. Is there supposed to be a connection?

Beautiful! Do the horse and griffin supporters have any significance? And what does "Utinam" mean? Benkarnell 14:23, 6 August 2008 (UTC)

Thankee! The horse to me indicates the rather "western frontier" nature of the Tejas, whereas the silver griffin is a traditional supporter of his family. The motto "Utinam" ("If God Wills") also comes from the King's family. I thought it appropriate given his predecessors' known religiousness. Zahir 16:22, 6 August 2008 (UTC)
Hi, utinam may often be translated as 'if God wills', but the word itself does not in itself have a religious denotation (it could be also rendered as 'if only' or 'hopefully' or 'I wish that ...'). The usual equivalent of 'If God wills' / 'God willing' is Deo volente. —Muke Tever | 22:52, 6 August 2008 (UTC)
