A star-spangled banner proudly displayed in San Antonio lacked a little something. Seven stars.

A San Antonio company has replaced a U.S. flag it produced that incorrectly had just 43 stars.

KSAT-TV reports the banner was displayed at the Northside Independent School District aquatics center when somebody noticed it didn't have the proper number of stars.

Aquatics director Scott Zolinski says you assume that when you order a flag that it will have the 50 stars. Zolinski says the district "went on good faith that when you purchase the item that it was the real thing."

Allied Advertising spokesman Jesse Castoreno said it was a "simple mistake" and the flag was designed by someone who is no longer employed at the company.

The company replaced the flag for free.
