Condo Association Threatens Fine For U.S. Flag In Window

BOSTON, (UPI) –  A Boston man said he believes his condo company would violate a federal law if it follows through with plans to fine him for a U.S. flag in his window.

Mark DiGiovanni, 52, said the company that manages his condominium building sent him a “gentle reminder” Monday he could face a $25-per-day fine for violating the “white curtains only” rule by putting a U.S. flag in his window, the Boston Herald reported Tuesday.

DiGiovanni said he plans to challenge the fine, which he said would violate the 2005 federal Freedom to Display the American Flag Act. The act says condo associations “may not adopt or enforce any policy, or enter into any agreement, that would restrict or prevent a member of the association from displaying the flag of the United States” in their own condo.

Condo association trustee Sean McGrail said the association was reacting to a violation of the colored curtains ban. He said the board does not plan to comment further on the dispute.
