Six Flags No Longer Flying Confederate Flag In Front of Parks

These are interesting times, friends. Six Flags has just decided to start flying only American flags in front of their parks. This obviously comes on the heels of tensions within the United States for requests and demands for symbols of the Confederacy be taken down from public places.

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.

“We always choose to focus on celebrating the things that unite us versus those that divide us,” a Six Flags spokeswoman told the paper. “As such, we have changed the flag displays in our parks to feature American flags.”

According to the Star-Telegram, flags are only flown at the Arlington, San Antonio and Georgia locations of the park. They will all only fly American flags from now on. What do you think? Is this a long time coming? Or should a company like Six Flags stick to their guns and tradition?
