President's Bush's Statement on Signing of the "Freedom to Display the American Flag Act of 2005"
Today, I was pleased to sign into law the "Freedom to Display the American Flag Act of 2005." Americans have long flown our flag at their homes as an expression of their appreciation for our freedoms and their pride in our Nation. As our brave men and women continue to fight to protect our country overseas, Congress has passed an important measure to protect our citizens' right to express their patriotism here at home without burdensome restrictions.
  • Asim Aziz is a Virginia resident, originally from Pakistan. He has been a citizen of the United States since 1994. For over 12 years, he has been a consultant to the Department of Defense. For the last seven years, he has been working for Herdt, Inc., founded by the former Master Chief Petty Officer of the Navy – Jim Herdt.

    Aziz is an Executive Director of Herdt. He consults on enterprise resource planning systems for DOD.

    Aziz is immensely grateful to his adopted country for all that is the United States, so much so that he has recently reduced hours on his full-time job to offer software training at no charge to wounded warrior veterans who need a new life. He has already begun training the first group on SAP software.

    Behind his 35’-high detached single family home at Belmont Country Club, in Ashburn, VA, Aziz has erected a flag pole and raised a flag that flew over the Navy Memorial in Washington, DC, on the 235th anniversary of the founding of the Navy. He has a certificate to prove it. The flag is not visible from the street in front of his house.

    But the Belmont Community Association wants him to take down the flag pole. Though the Belmont Country Club has five flagpoles of its own, each taller than the flagpole he erected, the community association wants his flagpole removed. Why? The reason is that their Policy Resolution #36 seeks to “preserve the overall uniform aesthetics of the community, which the Board considers to be a substantial interest of the Association.

    Are all flagpoles prohibited? No. “Flagpole staffs which do not exceed five feet in length and which are attached at an incline to the wall or pillar of a dwelling unit are permitted.”
