They are proud. And they have something of which to BE proud. Might be overdoing it a bit, and as St. Paul saith, pride tends to puff up just before you get knocked down... :-)

Cool colors.

It is a great accomplishment and I think they have every right to be proud. I like how they recycled their 20th banner — that made me smile.
