         WHEREAS, Most major electronic messaging applications
  provide a number of flag emojis, including that of the Republic of
  Chile, but the official flag of Texas, also known as the Lone Star
  Flag, is not included in the selection; and
         WHEREAS, All too often, the Chilean flag emoji is used as a
  substitute for the Lone Star Flag in text messaging and on social
  media platforms; the Chilean flag proudly represents its country
  but, despite its similarity to the Texas flag, it does not represent
  the State of Texas; and
         WHEREAS, The colors of the Chilean flag depict sky, snow, and
  blood spilled while fighting for freedom, but the blue, white, and
  red of the Lone Star Flag stand for the Texan values of loyalty,
  purity, and bravery; and
         WHEREAS, The single star of the Chilean flag, positioned in a
  blue canton, has been seen by some as a guide to progress and honor,
  while others have interpreted it to symbolize the powers of Chile's
  government; and
         WHEREAS, The independent Lone Star of Texas, situated in a
  blue left panel, represents all of Texas and stands for our unity as
  one for God, State, and Country, according to Section 3100.152(d),
  Government Code; additionally, the five points of the Lone Star
  have been said to represent the characteristics of a good Texas
  citizen: fortitude, loyalty, righteousness, prudence, and
  broadmindedness; and
         WHEREAS, The Lone Star Flag has a grand history, starting
  with its adoption as the third flag of the Republic of Texas by
  President Mirabeau B. Lamar and the Texas Congress in 1839, and just
  as our flag could never fully embody the country of Chile, neither
  can the Chilean flag inspire feelings of pride and passion in the
  heart of a true Texan; now, therefore, be it
         RESOLVED, That the 85th Legislature of the State of Texas
  hereby reject the notion that the Chilean flag, although it is a
  nice flag, can in any way compare to or be substituted for the
  official state flag of Texas and urge all Texans not to use the
  Republic of Chile flag emoji in digital forums when referring to the
  Lone Star Flag of the great State of Texas.
