Six Flags only flying United States flags now

Six Flags Over Texas is standing firm on flying the Confederate States of America flag despite the uproar post-Charlottesville

Six Flags Over Texas park officials confirmed that the six different flags that had previously flown over the park, including the Confederate States of America flag, will be replaced by six American flags, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

Six Flags has more than a dozen locations, including parks in California and NY.

Six Flags spokeswoman Sharon Parker said, "We always choose to focus on celebrating the things that unite us versus those that divide us".

They're trying so hard to save face! "As such, we have changed the flag displays in our park to feature American flags", a Six Flags spokesperson told NBC 5 Friday.

Six Flags Over Texas, faced with criticism over its longstanding display of a Confederate flag at its main amusement park, has made a decision to remove the item and display USA flags instead, local newspaper reports said on Friday.

You're forgiven: Trump to pardon 'racial profiler' Arpaio
Let's be honest: at this point, we're all pretty accustomed to President Donald Trump's early morning tweets . The "Fox & Friends" story was about Trump "seriously considering" a pardon for former-Sheriff Joe Arpaio .

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

Six Old Glories are already flying over the entrance to the theme park. "Since that time, the park has moved on to incorporate many other themes".

A Confederate flag at the park located between Dallas and Fort Worth has been on display since it opened in 1961. Defenders of the monuments and flags believe it is important to preserve them in public spaces for historical awareness, while those in favor of removing Confederate markers say their presence in public spaces is offensive, oppressive and unnecessary, and that history can effectively be preserved in museums and books.

Last weekend's fatal white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Va., was set off by a statue memorializing the Confederacy, and local governments have since been moving aggressively to remove similar symbols. And Six Flags has diluted or abandoned historic land theming in its parks over the past generation, with theming pretty much limited to those areas and attractions devoted to its DC Comics and other licensed franchises.

That was part of the company's rationale just yesterday, when it said it would not remove the Confederate flag.
