I’ve lived in and visited several states across the country but Texas definitely stands out with their state pride. I don’t think I’ve ever encountered as many state flags or stars celebrating the state in any of my travels. These aren’t just businesses either – Texas flags and/or stars are everywhere – in people’s homes, on people’s homes, vehicles here are branded as a “Texas edition”, fast food restaurants have specially named meals to include some variant of Texas in the title, and the list goes on.
Some people might call it cultural elitism but even if it is, I find it endearing. I have several pictures to illustrate what I’m talking about.
Have you ever seen this anywhere else? Is there a Florida edition of a truck? Have you seen labels next to your produce stating “Go Colorado”? Alaska is even bigger than Texas – is there Alaska sized baking cups?
