CARY, N.C. – A North Carolina man is fighting an order from his homeowner’s association to remove a Confederate-style flag from his front porch.
WNCN reported that Cary resident Frank Bray is flying his flag after he received a letter saying that it violates his homeowner’s association rules.
The flag features elements of the North Carolina state flag and the Confederate battle flag’s stars and bars.
The letter also said there have been several complaints about the flag and some are concerned it may hinder home sales in the community.
“I personally think this is a first amendment issue and I think the association is overstepping it’s bounds,” Bray said, according to the TV station.
The TV station spoke to neighbors who seemed to be divided on the issue. Bray said he has the right to fly whatever flag he chooses.
