When attending an event as massive as Austin City Limits Music Festival, it's inevitable to get split up from your group, whether it's for a refill at the bar or a porta potty break. As you inch closer to the stage, you look for the nearest flag to let your friends know where to meet you. This year, there seemed to be more flags than ever before, with bearers attempting to one-up each other with strange and clever sayings and images.
We were captivated by the colorful, creative, and hilarious flags flying high everywhere you turned during the first weekend of the fest. Emoji flags and bamboo poles seemed to be the most popular variety, while certain folks blew up their friends' faces for a less-than-subtle flag. Take a look at our favorite 12 flags from weekend one of ACL.
