Andrew Almer’s condo association ordered him to take the United States flag down from his balcony, claiming it’s too loud.
Fortunately, the Federal Freedom to Display the American Flag Act of 2005 forbids HOAs or other residential associations to make residents remove a US flag.
Unfortunately, the act also allows “reasonable restrictions” if they’re “necessary to protect a substantial interest” of the association.
The condo association is threatening Almer with huge fines, but he refuses to take the flag down.
The condo association refuses to answer requests for more info. Here’s hoping this goes viral and the association has the good sense to get embarrassed and drop their threats.
