Negative term used by countryfolk or other small-town citizens to describe non-native visitors that bring unwanted qualities of their hometown with them. It is often difficult for flatlanders to rid themselves of this label, even if they assimilate into the local culture.
This term can also be applied to a sudden and noticeable influx of non-native peoples into a larger town, state, or territory. These situations are often the result of a town/state/territory possessing natural beauty or resources.
Those goddamn flatlanders moved up from California to Oregon and ended up causing property taxes to rise.
A very laid back town that is quiet and enjoyable. The best place to live; Easy commute to the OBX and VA, unless your an ignorant city person who cant enjoy the outdoors, and find no fun being outside. These people are extremely annoying with their endless complaining that the town has nothing to do, and give the place a bad reputation. Most people can easily enjoy the town and love it here. Either you love it or you hate it.
"No it doesnt, your just a city person who doesnt know how to have fun"
