Without more information, I'm going to suggest that both parties are wrong.

The Home Owners Association (HOA) should have in its documentation the permitted way that an American flag may be displayed by the owners


the Veteran should recognize that living in an Home Owners Association does require some sort of conformity.

Here in Florida, for example, an HOA must allow owners to display the American flag, but they can (and each should) define the way it can be displayed. This allows any homeowner to display the flag whenever they wish.

I know you think you understand what you thought I said,
but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant!

News links gone, but I'll never fathom the big deal about flying a flag. Unless upside down or burning maybe. Amen for living in the boonies of Maine, no neighbors, can fly whatever one wants.

Kind of dense here, but it seems with so many rules/laws that don't make much sense, America isn't as free as I'd thought.

Gotta love life. :rolleyes:

In England these days it is considered shameful and even racist to fly the flag of St George.I am not an 'out and out' nationalist but it is the NATIONAL flag last time i checked.

Playing devil's advocate I would suggest that according to everyone's right to free speech you are allowed to fly the American flag. Or burn it if you wish.

Or to put it another way...
