A reminder to those who want to display the Texas flag in the vertical position: The white stripe is on the left and the red stripe is on the right.
From the Texas State Library and Archives Commission: General provisions regarding the Texas state flag, and information on the display of the flag, the flag pledge, and the retirement of the state flag are included in Chapter 3100 of the Texas Government Code, available from the Texas Constitution and Statutes site.
(a) If the state flag is displayed horizontally, the white stripe should be above the red stripe and, from the perspective of an observer, to the right of the blue stripe.
(b) If the state flag is displayed vertically:
(1) the blue stripe should be above the white and red stripes; and
(2) the white stripe should be, from the perspective of an observer, to the left of the red stripe. (my italics)
