Brief History

McMullen County was created in 1858 from portions of Atascosa, Bexar and
Live Oak Counties, but was not officially organized until 1877. Prior to
1877 all legal matters took place in neighboring Live Oak County. The county seat is 
located in Tilden. Marriages prior to 1877 will most likely be found in
Live Oak County. McMullen County is still today primarily a ranching community.

McMullen County Flag

McMullen County employs a cream-colored standard which bears the 
inscription "McMullen" in brown, written in such manner as to create the 
impression of a mountain or hill. Set atop the U of the inscription is a green
prickly pear cactus with three red flowers. To either side of the cactus are 
mesquite leaves. The four pads of the prickly pear represent the four Commissioner
districts of the county. The three red blooms represent the Blessed Trinity. The mesquite
leaves have 39 leaflets between them, representative of the books of the
Old and New Testaments of the Protestant Bible. The flag also carries 
a cream cravat, or sash, bearing a brown cross for the county's Catholic heritage.
