image for Six Flags Over Texas began parting ways with Confederate battle flag long ago

“We do not fly or sell any variation of the Confederate battle flag,” said Sharon Parker, a Six Flags spokeswoman.

The park does fly the Confederate flag, but it uses the lesser-known first national flag of the Confederacy.

Texas is represented as one of seven stars that form a circle in the upper left corner of that flag.

Parker said the first Confederate national flag was initially chosen by the park because it was displayed on the Texas state seal.

Sam Nesmith, 73, who led the original Confederate re-enactors at the park, said his troops mostly used the first national flag or a different Texas-Confederate flag.

Early on, the Confederate section of the park featured rebel soldiers searching through the crowds for Union spies.

Hats, flags and other souvenirs with the battle flag were sold in stores and kiosks in the Confederacy section. »
