Tenant’s Personal Flag Will Be Displayed at Apartments
St. Vincent de Paul has received a lot of attention today regarding a tenant who was asked to stop hanging a flag from the side of the apartment complex without permission. We would like to share the following updated information.
On Friday Mr. Zivica provided a list of dates when he would like to fly his flag. St. Vincent de Paul immediately agreed that a second flag should be hung on those dates. Our tenant feels this issue is resolved and has expressed his satisfaction to us and the local news.
Some additional information:
- This was never an issue about patriotism or respect for veterans. St. Vincent de Paul sponsors numerous emergency assistance, housing and job training opportunities for veterans.
- This was never about the American flag; a lit American flag flies on a flagpole at the complex 24/7.
- We are pleased that this issue has been resolved and we sincerely apologize for the misunderstanding.
