The name refers to the six flags that have flown over the state of Texas during its history, namely those of Spain, France, Mexico, The Confederate States of America, The Republic of Texas and the United States of America.
The Six Flags chain began in 1961 with the creation of Six Flags Over Texas by Angus G. Wynne of Arlington, Texas, which initially featured a Native American village, a gondola ride, a railroad, some Wild West shows, a stagecoach ride, and "Skull Island", a pirate-themed adventure attraction.
There was also an excursion aboard "French" boats through a wilderness full of animated puppets. Over time, all of those attractions, except for the railroad, would be replaced by others, such as roller coasters, swing rides, log flumes, and shoot-the-chute rides, as well as an observation tower.
"Six Flags, More Flags, More Fun!" which is the current slogan of Six Flags parks.
Six Flags sold its European parks.
