    So far I've identified some flags from 1:38 in the new #3 / ESPN Monday Football Trailer:
    [Corresponding number from master image] [Flag name] (position L/R, position front/back)
    [​IMG]

    Notice that there are duplicate flags and are denoted with letters and duplicate numbers

    Some new images have been added from the following new TV spot screenshot! I'll isolate them from the image time willing, but the new finds have been added below!

    I wonder what the significance is. Or if they're just simply easter eggs...

    Great catches man, seems likely that Maz is an old timey pod racing fan. The Mandalorian stuff makes me the happiest though.

    Edit: Apparently someone thinks that this message is trolling, lol I'm confused.

    Edit: Now the trolling is gone, maybe they did it by accident :)

    a) WOW. I just thought they were colors.
    b) Probably easter eggs, given the Sebulba and Anakin ones.

    Perhaps this is the pirate base on the jungle planet they visit - and many old podracers went there once it was made illegal by the Empire?

    In the new poster it looks like she's wearing goggles, perhaps she was a podracer herself :)

    You could be on to something, and if Maz is indeed force sensitive like we've been lead to believe so far, that would have made her a great pod racing pilot.

    My thoughts exactly!

    --- Double Post Merged, Oct 20, 2015, Original Post Date: Oct 20, 2015 ---


    The blue flag with the white logo below and to the right of the Mythosaur Skull flag looks slightly like an up-side down Death Watch flag... but I'm not sure enough to put it on the list quite yet, primarily because the coloring doesn't match a pre-existing schema like the others so far.

    --- Double Post Merged, Oct 20, 2015 ---
    Ziro the Hutt's Tattoo, mid-back llower left, triangular purple flag.

    Finding a handful more, will just edit main posting.

    Isn't that the flag of the Ohnaka Gang, light purple greyish, next to the 'shoulder plate' of the droid?

    It's the place where Max von Sydow lives. He's Kitster and he's collecting pod racing flags.

    It might be a way of identifying gangs that are welcomed or represented at this location, possibly even united. I feel like the pod racing flags are easter eggs. Just my humble opinion.

    Could be! Not for certain but it's not too far of a stretch. Could also just be for representation like tk42 suggests.

    Han: Welcome to Maz Kanata's Castle.

    Rey: Looks like a wretched hive of scum and villainy.

    Han: Worse. Pod racing hipsters.

    Whew! Big update adding in thumbnails and reference shots.

    I feel like there's opportunity to figure out in #1, #6 and #13 since they're pretty iconic. The others may be too obscure or made up. Realized that #8 is a duplicate of Sebulba's flag again.

    I wonder why they have those old flags, this is all BBY stuff, over half a century passed.

    I'm surprised that didn't come to mind. I suppose the Mandalorians and Ohnaka Gang may still be current but on the whole you're right. We could just be looking way too much into this and they were stuck trying to mine the other films only for iconography (in order to not use legends content)? I guess we'll have to find out the exact reasons closer to or after release.
