Veteran wins battle to fly U.S., USMC flags outside home - Atlanta News, Weather, Traffic, and Sports | FOX 5: The homeowners association at the Sun City retirement community said that covenants only allowed one flag to be displayed outside a home.
Despite public outcry, the homeowners association stood by their rules and threatened to fine Lowe $25 for each day that both flags were displayed. The HOA even warned about the possibility of placing a lien on Lowe's home.
Capt. Lowe and his wife, Sandy, had promised to move if the HOA wouldn't bend.
After the story attracted national attention, property management finally agreed to change the covenants. The new rules now allow for two flags as long as one of them is the U.S. flag, Lowe said
Obdurate HOAs rarely prevail in the court of public opinion.
