Should "shopping centers" be accepted as alternative answer?

Please moderators, make 'shopping centres' a correct answer. British English speakers instinctively use 'shopping centre' rather than 'mall'. The word 'mall' to us is foreign, unnatural; ugly even.

Since it is hard to imagine a square that is actually the color red, it is only natural to assume that the sentence refers to a square that is named "Red Square" in which case "the" is most likely to be omitted in American speech.

But if it's a proper name, the đ should be capitalized.

My mistake. I dropped the "the" thinking it was the one is Russia.

But is that a mistake? Or could it be "Red Square?"

Mods ơi, tôi là cấp 25 và tôi yêu cầu các bạn thay đổi từ này cho 'shopping centres'. 'Malls' là một tư xấu và tệ. Tôi không thích tiêng Mỹ, nó là ngôn ngữ dơi bị nói bằng người dơi.

Whether "shopping mall" is a traditionally correct use of the word or not, I cannot say, but the word is a valid word in English, British or otherwise. You can blame the Americans for the usage but not the word. BTW, we traditionally use mall for broad, open public space, e. g., "The Mall" in Washington, D. C., which is the open area between the Capitol and the Washington Monument-- not a shabby place at all. "Shopping mall" is more pretentious than ugly.

Is this THE Red Square or a red square?

With no classifier, I would have thought THE Red Square.
