Showgirls Present Interstate 11 Flag

Highways often have logos, but they seldom (if ever?) have flags. On April 6 there was a sighting of this rare beast at a groundbreaking for Interstate 11 in Nevada attended by the governor, both US senators, and other officials. I-11 will bypass Boulder City, providing a faster link between Las Vegas and Phoenix. Las Vegas showgirls led the delegation to the stage, and then presented a large white flag charged with the I-11 shield.

Alas, given the apparently sizable budget for the event (and the massive construction project), the flag is unimaginative. Half the time it’s illegible, as in the picture below, reading “ETATSRETNI”.
