Is it legal to fly the Confederate flag in Ohio?
Sure, you can contractually waive any civil rights you want to, as a condition to being a tenant or a condo owner. Read your association bylaws and take legislative action in …meetings with the other members if you want to change something. Check with your state's statutes. It is illegal in Maryland for Condo associations to forbid the flying of the American flag. Another Answer Read your governing documents to determine your rights to display material, either in your windows, on your lawns and so forth. As well, review your state's laws, to determine whether your governing documents are enforceable on this matter. You also have the option to petition your board to amend your governing documents to conform to the state law. The amendment process depends on which one of your governing documents covers displaying material visible from the exterior of your unit. (Both answers hold the same position; just stated a little differently.)
Many reasons. Often it is because they are proud of their southern heritage. It may also hold sentimental value for descendants of confederate soldiers. Others may simply fly …it because it has come to symbolize what they value or believe in. & some just do use it for racist-purposes to. Particularly among Neo-Nazi Racist groups
The Sons of Confederate Veterans and People who have pride and Love for Dixieland.
As a resident of SC and to my knowledge the confederate flag does not fly over the capital building. I seem to recall it was moved to the grounds in front of the capital with …it's own monument.
According to the U.S. flag code article 175 section F, the Texas flag, or any other state/local flag can be flown at the same height as the United States flag, as long as it i…s neither higher nor to the right of Old Glory.
Yes, Its legal to fly it in any state. It's your 1st Amendment right.
No, it's not illegal, although some people think it is racist and immoral.
It is legal to display any flag in the US. This is a matter of freedom of symbolic speech.
In the United States (including Ohio), the First Amendment and related jurisprudence guarantee that it isn't illegal to fly any flag, anywhere, with just a few exceptions. The… exceptions can be generally categorized as 1) immediate incitements to violence or mischief and 2) obscenity. Unless the confederate flag says "Fire! Run!," says "Rally here to blow up a federal courthouse," or displays child pornography, you're certainly safe from the law. Your friends and neighbors may be another concern.
Yes, it is legal in the US to fly a US, or other flag, from your car. Many people do that.
It is not illegal, but it is against tradition and protocol and would not be proper. The United States flag flies on top, then beneath that the state flag, and then beneath th…at, the Confederate flag may be flown.
Yes Added: Exactly WHICH Confederate flag is being referred to? The so-called battle flag - OR - the national emblem of the Confederate States (sometimes referred to as "The B…onnie Blue" - OR - one of the MANY other flags flown and/or used by the individual Confedrate States and/or their military forces? Additional: Is there a citation for reference for the original answer.
For some values of "they", and some values of "the confederate flag", yes. The Battle Flag of the Army of Tennessee, the one that's red with white stars on a dark blue salt…ire (diagonal cross) that most people automatically think of when they think "confederate flag", is flown by some people as a symbol of their heritage, or in some cases as a symbol of a heritage they wish they had. It's also flown by some racist morons. Distinguishing between the two groups can, in some cases, be problematic, since the racist morons like to hide behind the "heritage" folks. Also: The current Georgia state flag is quite similar to the first Confederate national flag (the "Stars and Bars"); it's essentially identical to the 13-star variant of the Stars and Bars with an additional emblem in the center of the circle of stars. Mississippi's state flag is a bit like the second Confederate national flag (the "Stainless Banner"), except that instead of a pure white field the field is divided into three bars, from top to bottom blue, white, and red.
technicaly no, no law states that you cant do it, but a cop could cite several laws such as distraction to others, improperly secured items, hight limitations, blocking vision… things of that nature.
Yes. A great number of disgusting, distasteful and unpleasant things are legal in the United States, of which the Nazi flag, the ISIS flag and the Confederate flag are only a …few. We have this peculiar custom called "Freedom of Speech", enshrined in the First Amendment to our Constitution. Are you offended by that? Then don't look.
