The Lone Star State

The Lone Star State
«штат одинокой звезды». Официальное прозвище штата Техас, на флаге которого изображена одна звезда. Отторгнутый от Мексики рабовладельцами американского Юга Техас в течение некоторого времени был независимой республикой, экономика которой основывалась на рабском труде негров. С тех пор «одинокая звезда» символизирует независимый дух Техаса. Противопоставляя себя жителям других штатов США, техасцы с гордостью называют себя Lone Star Staters — жители «штата одинокой звезды».
