A couple from Oakland Park, Florida, Bob Plominski and Mike Ferrari, have been warned of a fine of $ 50 a day for the public display in his home of a small rainbow flag in the front yard of his house on the occasion of Gay Pride Month.
The display of this flag is against Eastland Cove Neighborhood Association regulations, as explained by the neighborhood association itself and collected by local television WTVJ-TV.
The warning was sent to the two owners on June 5 as a result of a claim presented to the association and is due to the internal regulations of the same, which obliges the owners not to display flags other than the US and military symbols.
The couple have expressed surprise at the warning, as they have exhibited the same flag and banners with political messages on previous occasions without incident.
“It made me mad. We have done it before“said Bob Plominski, one of the homeowners.
“It is to show our pride to the community for 30 days,” explained Bob Plominski, who stated that they will hold the flag for the rest of the month.
