New Jersey Town Proposes Banning American Flag (1 Viewer)


This is a very small article so I'm not sure where they are talking about banning the flag and signs. I'm guessing only on public property but nowadays I really wouldn't be surprised if they were trying to tell people they couldn't fly them on their own property.

It reminds me a while back some low income housing in Boston told Irish residents to stop putting shamrocks on their doors or in their windows because it might offend the newer, darker residents there.

The Hudson County town of West New York is considering a widespread sign regulation that could include banning American flags from being flown.

The Board of Commissioners have a draft ordinance for "General Sign Regulations".

Among the prohibited signs under the proposal would be "Flags, banners and pennants."
This has opponents upset.

"What if I want to hang the American Flag? I can't," Frank Ferriero told politickerNJ. "Man, that's un-American."

The proposed ordinance was first read at a meeting on Wednesday. The final vote on the proposal will be held on Feb. 20 at a 7 p.m. meeting at the municipal building.

The ordinance would also ban signs affixed to the exterior of a window or glass, neon signs framing windows, and window and door signs that exceed 15% of the glass area.
