Utah Homeowners Fight to Fly American Flag

Utah Homeowners Fight to Fly American Flag

Residents of a small Utah condominium community say they are being fined for American flag displays that their homeowners association considers “exterior decorations” that can only go up around holidays.

Erin Worthen, of Murray, says she was issued a $75 fine last week for the American flag display at her Chestnut Place residence, along with a notice from the homeowners association that said “all exterior decorations must be removed within 10 days following the holiday…Please remove your flag from the common area.”

Worthen told "Fox & Friends" Sunday she was “very frustrated and angry” at being told she can only fly the flag around holidays. Her father and grandfathers were Navy veterans and she said it has meant a lot to her to be able to display the flag every day.

“It means to me that the men and women who serve our country do a job that I know that I could not do,” she said. “It’s just my way of saying thank you to them and honoring their sacrifice that they do every day -- day in and day out -- and not just on holidays.”

The president of the homeowners association told Fox 13 in Salt Lake City Thursday that she was tired of seeing flags, not just the American flag, flying up and down the street all day and all night, 365 days a year.
