Statesville, N.C. — Camping World officials are seeking public support in a dispute with city leaders about the size of their American Flag.
City ordinance states that a flag within 100 feet of the highway cannot be larger than 25 by 40 feet, according to WSOC. The flag in question is 40 by 80 feet.
In a Facebook post company officials left the following message:
The City of Statesville, North Carolina has filed a lawsuit seeking an injunction to require Gander RV in Statesville, NC to take down their American Flag. They are imposing a $50/day fine retroactive to 10/15/18.
Many cities like Statesville have requested that Camping World and Gander Outdoors take down their American Flags. WE WON’T DO IT! Stand with us.
This is about more than just the flag. This is about our Veterans, Military, and the men and women that have sacrificed for this great country. They are the reason we fly the flag and they are the reason we will NOT take it down! Sign the petition!
