The Hudson County town of West New York is considering a widespread sign regulation that could include banning American flags from being flown.

The Board of Commissioners have a draft ordinance for “General Sign Regulations [2]“.

Among the prohibited signs under the proposal would be “Flags, banners and pennants.”

This has opponents upset.

“What if I want to hang the American Flag? I can’t,” Frank Ferriero told¬†politickerNJ [3]. “Man, that’s un-American.”

The proposed ordinance was first read at a meeting on Wednesday.  The final vote on the proposal will be held on Feb. 20 at a 7 p.m. meeting at the municipal building.
