College student told to remove American flag from apartment balcony

Sep 21, 2014 by

SAN DIEGO – A local college student contacted Team 10 after he said his apartment complex managers told him he needed to take down his American flag.

Brad Smith moved into the new Boulevard 63 Apartments last month. A couple days ago, he received a notice to remove the American flag hanging from his balcony.

Smith asked the apartment community managers why.

“We were then told that it was for political reasons and that the flag could offend foreign people that live here, foreign exchange students,” Smith said.

That did not sit well with the San Diego State University sophomore.

“I’ve had friends and family fight to defend that flag,” Smith said.

Team 10 took a closer look at the lease and the community rules.
