CARY, NC (WNCN) — A Cary man is fighting an order from his homeowner’s association to remove  a Confederate-style flag that’s flying on his front porch.

Frank Bray says he purchased the flag, which features elements of the North Carolina state flag as well as the Confederate battle flag’s stars and bars, in reaction to recent news events, he believes, unfairly depicts the flag as a symbol of racism. It’s flying outside his home in the Carpenter Village neighborhood.

“I’m proud of where I’m from,” Bray said. “There’s no malice or ill-will behind it.”

But in a letter from Omega Association Management, Bray is notified that his flag represents a violation of HOA rules.

“Please be aware that this type of flag is not permitted in the community,” the letter reads. It goes on to say, “We have received several complaints regarding the offensive nature of your flag, as well as concerns it may hinder the sale of homes in the community.”  Read more:
