Perhaps even more shocking is the fact that these were not full-sized flags, but rather foot-tall flags that can be held with one hand. It’s hard to imagine that the display was causing any harm or violating any code, however the government employee told the hardware store owner that the flags violated a city ordinance against placing banners in the “right of way.”
Shortly after the incident, Verzi appeared on television to discuss the interaction and his reason for flying the flags.
Several of the city’s residents have stood up in support of Verzi by waving flags of their own. What do you think? Do you support Verzi?
