Michigan Woman May Face Fine from Complex for Hanging American Flag


A Michigan woman is facing threats of fines from her townhome complex for hanging an American flag on her door.

Doris Fladzinkski hung the flag on her door at Kearsley Creek Townhomes and received a notice that she would be fined $25 per day for every day the flag remained up until she took it down.

“I pay to live here. The door, as far as I’m concerned, is my property until I step on the sidewalk,” Fladzinkski said to WNEM. “I don’t care what kind of flag you want to hang, as long as our flag is on top.”

Managers of the townhome complex told WNEM that restrictions are in the lease and that allowing one type of flag on one door would open a figurative door to potentially offensive displays.
