    Maybe it's like a pub having lots of different foreign banknotes or beer mats stuck up behind the bar.

    Isn't Maz supposed to be a pirate Queen? Perhaps she has brought together all these gangs, and is the Queen of the Underworld, these flags represent the worlds and gangs that are under her rule.

    If the galaxy did fall into chaos with the Empire and New Republic battling it out, and with Jabba the Hutt dead the Underworld would need someone to take over and really push themselves.

    So why not a Underworld government that brought multiple Outer Rim worlds under the control of a crime lord who just happens to be known by one of the galaxy's greatest smugglers of all time?

    Great job!
    I really hope they're not purely easter eggs, they could mean so much more

    I think it's a great point. Perhaps Maz was at the center of bringing the criminal minds together. That under the schism of the Empire and New Order, and the flailing foundation of a second Republic, the criminal underground, became a sort of unified Government of their own. Utilizing their own sort of payment system (trading of goods, ie: relics such as Rey is collecting). Perhaps the conversation between her and Maz, is Rey turning in something she's discovered; perhaps she's very in tune with the force (but unawares, ala Ezra) and this is what makes her a good scavenger. Maz senses this, which is why she asks her: "Who are you?"

    Such as like the Japanese Mob; where they have their alleged illegal works that they do, but when natural disasters happen, and the like, they're the ones delivering goods, etc; to families.

    Just an observation.

    I'm glad they're acknowledging the prequels, and fortunately these references will only take 10 seconds of screen time.

    Maybe the props crew found those old pod racer flags in Lucasfilm storage and decided to put them in for kicks.

    I'm with you on this one. Similar to a place like TGI Fridays that has a bunch of license plates from all the states on the walls. I'm guessing they are just Easter eggs for the more hardcore fans like us, and doesn't have any extra meaning. Very cool, though, and this is an excellent post, tip of the hat dude.

    "Sebulba's flag" coulad actually be the flag for Malastare. Same for all the "podracer flags". To me those flags are more representative of various worlds.

    I agree, this would further the idea that Maz has united the Outer Rim worlds that were under the Hutts and made herself the "Pirate Queen" that we have heard about. Han and the gang are coming to her to find black market information.

    Could be! Anakin's flag may be a bit of a red herring. Unfortunately we haven't seen these pod racers' planets' flags so it's not easy to confirm.

    #5A,B - Anakin Skywalker (Mid left background, and next to itself again, rotated)


    Would it make more sense for this to be Watto's flag since he owned Anakin as a slave when he was podracing?

    What if Tatooine got terraformed into Takodana? (which would also be a good reason why Jakku is introduced in the first place).

    At least acording to
    Looking into this, according to the Legends Podracing Tales and Episode I Visual Guide, the flags are all representative of the individual racers. It would make sense if it was provided to Anakin though from Watto. However, Watto expected Anakin to lose so I could also see him not wanting to be associated with that pod (especially since he bet against him).

    I thought the Max von Sydow character lived on Jakku, somewhere near Rey.
