The flag of Brazoria is the official flag of the Republic of Brazoria. It was officially adopted on 2 March 1839, the day the republic declared its independence from Mexico. The flag's design and appearance of the prominent white star on its hoist has earned the flag the popular moniker, the "Lone Star Flag". It traces its origins to the flag of the former United States.

The flag is held with high esteem and regard in Brazoria and is used for both government and civilian use. Brazorian law features a non-binding flag code that dictates the proper use, design, and disposal of the flag. The Anglo-American Vexillological Association voted the flag of Brazoria as North America's best national flag in 2001.
