The purpose of the Bernardo De Galvez Texas SAR Color Guard Medal (approved by NSSAR at the 2009 National Congress) is to promote Color Guard Activity within the Texas Society, to show recognition to the Texas Society Color Guard, to promote the service of our Patriot Bernardo De Galvez, to promote the history of New Spain and Texas in the American Revolution, and to offer recognition for Color Guardsmen who come to Texas to support a National Color Guard Event.

The Galvez medal presents a means to bring recognition to the sacrifices made by Color Guard members and the prominence brought to the Texas Society by their efforts.

The purpose of the Bernardo de Galvez Gold Medal is to recognize distinguished and prolonged service to the Texas Society and the Texas Society Color Guard.  Requirements are:  Active membership in the Texas Society Color Guard for at least six (6) years; A reasonable degree of activity over the service period, which do not need to be continuous; A Texas SAR Color Guardsman must have the Galvez Bronze Color Guard Medal and the Galvez Silver Color Guard medal before he can be awarded the Gold Galvez Color Guard Medal.
