Geographic Flag for Lubbock, Texas

The Geographic Flag for Lubbock, Texas is a tribar of red, white, and red.  Note that colors are coded to numbers.  And the order is based upon a rainbow: red is coded to 1, yellow is coded to 3, and white is coded to zero. 

The star in the middle represents the latitude: 33 Degrees North.  Since both stars are yellow it makes the number 33.  Also the dominant front star is pointing upwards, and this indicates the Northern Hemisphere.  In addition the central white pentagon indicates a Western line of Longitude.
