Both the United States and Virginia have a “Right to Display the American Flag Act.”

A condominium association, cooperative association, or residential real estate management association 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 on residential property within the association with respect to which such member has a separate ownership interest or a right to exclusive possession or use.

Curiously, the association rules also require that “The display of the American flag shall at all times be in accordance with any and all applicable Federal and State laws.”

He didn’t set out trying to get every patriotic person in America fired up. He just wanted to fly the flag in his backyard. The flag that flew over the Navy Memorial building on the 235th anniversary of the founding of the United States Navy. Belmont Country Club, Ashburn, VA – A Toll Brothers community has five of its own flagpoles in common areas but consider this flagpole in his own backyard a source of objection. Perhaps the Belmont Community Association – HOA considers themselves more patriotic? Both the United States and Virginia have a “Right to Display the American Flag Act.”
