The Biggest Ukrainian Flag Flying in Dallas

Don Knobler's office on Central Expressway today ran it up the pole.

You know Don Knobler even if you don’t realize you know Don Knobler. He’s a Mavericks superfan. So much so that in 2019 he was banned from home games after heckling a Clippers player. Recognize him?

I’m torn. I mean, that level of incivility shouldn’t be encouraged. At the same time, though, LET’S GO MAVRELLO!

Knobler has a residential and commercial leasing office on the west side of Central Expressway, between Fitzhugh and Knox. Today I saw that he’d put up a huge Ukrainian flag over his shop. So I called to see if there was any story behind it. Maybe Knobler has relatives there. I was also curious how hard it was to secure such an enormous flag. I was instructed by a friendly woman in his office (she said the flag had gone up only an hour earlier) to email my questions. Which I did.

Knobler himself replied. He sent the 6-second video you see below. No answers to my questions. Just the video. Which I guess I respect. The flag speaks for itself.

(NOTE: honestly, I can’t swear this is the largest Ukrainian flag in Dallas right now. But it’s frickin’ huge. If someone else is flying a bigger Ukrainian flag, let me hear from you.)
