Just like they like it in Texas: big and tacky. And pretty boastful too. (Legendary? I haven’t even heard a tall tale about Lubbock.) Music crossroads of Texas? I thought Austin was already the live music capital of the world – way to dream big, Lubbock. I suppose that means that all the musicians pass through Lubbock on their way to Austin or other places in Texas. That, or they’re just warning musicians that there is a strong chance they could get T-Boned there at that intersection. Slogans aside, this flag is really terrible. It looks like it was designed by one of the Designing Women – not any of the ones with taste, though – one of the ones who wore shoulder pads. Lots of colors going on, and lots of gradients. If there’s one thing that doesn’t work in a flag, it’s a gradient. I’m glad the designer learned how to use gradients in Adobe FrameMaker, but that didn’t need to make it into a flag.
