The city of Seminole, Florida ordered firefighters to remove American flags from their trucks after receiving complaints from local citizens. The flags were offensive.
Florida fire fighters say the city apparently got two complaints about American flags being flown from fire trucks.H/T Gateway Pundit
The flags were not a safety issue, and they were not tattered or torn. But when the complains came the flags were gone.
A dozen demonstrators stood outside a Seminole fire station waving American flags Sunday. They say they were there because fire fighters were banned from flying old glory on their trucks.
A spokeswoman for Seminole Fire Rescue said the city is trying to be sensitive about the proper display of the American flag.
Someone allegedly complained to the city about a large American flag being flown from the back of a ladder truck.
