SAN ANTONIO -- Built in the bicentennial year of 1976, the Olympic-sized Northside Independent School District Aquatics Center has helped train a gold medal winner.(from KSAT-12)
Banners that celebrate the achievements of the Holmes Huskies and the John Jay Mustangs are hanging from the roof of the aquatics center next to the Texas and U.S. flags.
But one person noticed and complained that the U.S. flag was seven stars short of the normal 50 stars.
"Just a simple mistake, that's all," Jesse Castoreno of Allied Advertising [the maker of the flag] said about the missing stars.
Who knows? Maybe someone at Allied Advertising has something against Wyoming, Utah, Oklahoma, Arizona, New Mexico, Alaska, and Hawaii. After all, Abe Simpson refuses to recognize Missourah!
UPDATE: Looking at the KSAT video, it seems they had the flag displayed improperly, too.
