Tobacco on the flag, huh? That’s the way it’s going to be? In a town that has a tobacco spitting festival, that’s probably par for the course. Those are very nice drawings of tobacco leaves, by the way. If you’re a six year old. The script font is really quite nice. It looks especially good in CAPS LOCK. Also, I’m really glad that U.S.A. is specified. When I first saw it, I almost thought this flag was for Bloomfield, Kentucky, Portugal.
This flag was designed by an Eagle Scout. Seriously. I thought they were supposed to do good things for their community. I guess Eagle Scout Alex Martin III (who “designed” this atrocity) earned his merit badge in ugly. (Oh, yeah – I called him out, mostly because I think he halfass bullshited his community.) In 1998. The year that the tobacco companies made an unprecedented settlement with the states, handing over billions of dollars and finally officially admitting that tobacco is not healthy. Keep it classy, Bloomfield. And maybe revoke that tobacco loving kid’s Eagle Scout standing. At least roll this flag up and light it on fire.
