Today appears to be a day for satire and parody. John C. A. Bambenek, on his blog Part-Time Pundit, set up an interesting, but constitutitonally impossible scenario (see, US Const. art. V, last clause), in which Louisiana's star is removed from the flag.

Mr. Bambenek's illustration, which simply plucks a star from the pattern of the existing 50 star flag, is illustrative of the point in his satirical article; but let us not forget that there was a real 49-star flag that officially represented the USA from 4 July 1959 until the 50th star was added on 4 July 1960.
