Public displays of the American flag have recently been called into question at a Wrentham housing complex, which sent a notice to its residents that public displays of the flag were not allowed outside the building. This caused frustration and anger for many tenants yesterday, before the state intervented and corrected the error in the face of public pressure.
According to The Sun Chronicle, residents of the Garden Lane public housing complex were told through a notice on their doors that public displays of the flag were not allowed in public housing, even though there are flag-holding apparati affixed to most windows in the complex.
The ban was enforced after an anonymous tenant reportedly complained to the state Department of Housing and Community Development, but the rule itself enforcing the ban was never brought up.
