A homeowners association in suburban Denver is weighing whether or not to fine a woman who's been hanging a flag upside down outside her house.
Beth Hammer hung the flag on March 19, the fourth anniversary of the invasion of Iraq, to protest the war.
Her homeowners association says the display violates the neighborhood's "patriotic and political expression policy." The HOA manager says the rules are meant to maintain harmony in the community, not restrict freedom.
But Hammer's lawyer says other people have violated the code by having dirty flags displayed in flower pots but they haven't been told to remove them.
Hammer faces fines of up to $500 a day, which could be applied retroactively. A decision is expected within ten days.
