On the morning of October 2, 1835, Lieutenant Castañeda requested the cannon be returned to the Mexican military—a condition on which it had been loaned to DeWitt’s Colony—but the Texians pointed to the gun which stood about 200 yards to their rear, and said, “there it is—come and take it.” Soon after the conflict began, at the request of the Anglo-Celtic leaders, the ladies of the settlement hastily made a flag to fly over the cannon. The flag featured a white ground with a black cannon in the center, and the motto “Come and take it!” above and below.
