Good shot, Walter. We have a couple of SixFlags parks here in CA but no Mall.

Nice shot. Do you know the six flags? I can identify three of them, USA, Mexico, and Texas State. What are the other three?

Spain is another (upper left). Couldn't identify the other 2. I look in the following:

Jeff, your reply on this one appears in dark blue. I think that's what Cal is talking about. Not easy to read at all.

The 6 flags represented are the 6 flags that have flown over the state of Texas, being that Six Flags is a Texas based company.

They are the US, Mexican, and Spanish national flags, the Confederate States flag called the Stars and Bars (looks like the Stars and Stripes), Republic of Texas flag, and the flag of old Royal France (the Quebec flag has 4 fleur-de-lis, and a white cross. It was based on the Royal flag).

Thanks for that! Very interesting background information.

BTW, I just got off a plane having been in San Diego (actually El Cajon) for the past 4 days. Had an enjoyable lunch in Old Town yesterday.
