If you are a patriot like we are and would like to prove it by showing off your United States flag, then by all means, please do. However, if you live in a planned community, condominium, cooperative or homeowner association, then rules and regulations will apply.

As long as displayed in a respectful manner, anybody in any community can erect a portable or removable United States flag. This doesn’t mean, if you live in a condominium, that you can automatically mount a flag bracket outside your front door. The association maintains the exterior wall and the board may not allow for a wall mount.  Also, displaying the American flag in a respectful way doesn’t mean displaying a flag as big as a screen of a drive-in-theater.

Associations have different rules and regulations dealing with flags and decorations. Regardless of any community rule, if modeled in a respectful manner not larger than 4 ½ by 6 feet may display a portable or removable flag representing the United States Army,
Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps and Coast Guard on these days:

Armed Forces Day
Memorial Day
Flag Day
Independence Day
Veterans Day

718.113 (4):  Any unit owner may display one portable, removable United States flag in a respectful way and, on Armed Forces Day, Memorial Day, Flag Day, Independence Day, and Veterans Day, may display in a respectful way portable, removable official flags, not larger than 41/2 feet by 6 feet, that represent the United States Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps, or Coast Guard, regardless of any declaration rules or requirements dealing with flags or decorations.
