Delia Foster dutifully complied with her neighborhood’s homeowners association earlier this year when she was instructed to remove an American flag and pole from her front yard. She was informed that the pole was considered a structure and was therefore prohibited from the property.
After doing some digging on her own, Foster determined that the HOA had no specific restrictions on the display of flags. Furthermore, the association operates in conjunction with county codes, which do not define flagpoles as structures.
As a result, she was allowed to once again allowed to proudly display what she calls the “icon and the beacon for everyone in the military.”
