Brazos County adopted the Official County Flag for the Sesquicentennial adopted by the Texas legislature on 18 February 1985.
The flag is blue with a large white Lone Star in the center of two concentric white rings near the hoist. Surrounding the Lone Star are 37 smaller gold stars, representing the original counties of Texas created during the era of independence. The inner ring displays 115 red stars for the counties created from 1846 to 1860. The outer ring has 91 blue stars for the counties created between 1861 and 1900 and 11 green stars for those created during the twentieth century. The name of the county and its date of creation appear on the fly with a white-bordered red star.
