Six Flags Over Texas Removes Confederate, Other Historic Flags From Park

Six Flags Over Texas No Plans to Remove Confederate Flag After Charlottesville Attack

Do you support the decision Six Flags Over Texas just made about flying this flag?

Six Flags Entertainment operates 20 theme parks in the U.S., Mexico and Canada, but other than the Arlington park, only Six Flags Fiesta Texas in San Antonio and Six Flags Over Georgia flew all six flags.

The six different flags that fly at the park are the six different flags that have flown over Texas throughout history.

They're trying so hard to save face!

Six Flags is in a unique position on the topic.

The park previously stood behind its display of the Confederate flag, but decided to make a change after the violent white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia last week, Fox News reported.

Six Old Glories are already flying over the entrance to the theme park.

The park was named for the six flags that've flown over Texas.

The theme park has completely done away with the Confederate flag in the park, and now all other flags have been replaced with the American flag. "As such, we have changed the flag displays in our park to feature American flags", said Sharon Parker, Manager of Communications for Six Flags Over Texas.

The Stars and Bars version, a name often misappropriated to the battle flag, has a field made up of three alternating red and white horizontal stripes with a blue square in the corner housing a ring of white stars.

Symbols of the Confederacy have come into fresh focus since last weekend after white nationalists, angered at the planned removal of a statute honouring Confederate General Robert E. Lee from a public park in Charlottesville, Virginia, engaged in violent protests in which a counter-protester was killed.
