Thank you folks for the explanation of:...

When I saw this fabulous star, I thought (obviously) that this is another
symbol. The star should be red.

The lambda is a graphically poor way of representing hammer and sickle.

I thought that perhaps somebody mixed-up the dates, and it was some
Red October date, e.g. November 7.

Now I see that it is Texas. Aha. They use lambdas instead of hammers and
sickles. Good, it seems to be less bug-prone.
