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.
