BRUNSWICK COUNTY, N.C. — A North Carolina woman is battling her homeowner association over her right to fly her American and state flags.

WECT reported that Brunswick County resident Rhona Sherrill was told she can’t fly both flags at her home because of a “one-flag addendum.”

Only one decorative and seasonal flag may be displayed per home, and only during official federal and national holidays, according to Seascape’s Statuary Landscape and House Ornaments Addendum.

Sherrill said she received an email from the property owner’s liaison that her two flags were not within the restrictive covenants of the community.

Sherrill said she believes the law is on her side and is going to continue flying the flags for the time being.
