The city of New Houston is a human colonial city on Mars. This part of the novel includes a somewhat patchy description of a flag:

My father had sewn a flag, stripes and a star — the Lone Star State, he had said, with a red star that made him laugh.

I've made a gif of the best guess as to what that flag might have looked like.
