Camping World flag raising blocked in N.C.

STATESVILLE, N.C. — A tennis-court-sized American flag still won’t fly over Camping World’s dealership south of Exit 49 on Interstate 77 after a divided city council voted Monday to leave Statesville’s flag regulations unchanged, reported the Statesville Record & Landmark.

It was the second time Camping World was blocked from having any chance to legally install a 40-by-80-foot flag on the grounds of its dealership at 1220 Morland Drive. The city denied a request by Camping World in August 2015 to fly an oversized flag there.

The flag issue was run up the pole again on Dec. 4 when Councilman John Staford asked city staff members to explore ways to exempt Old Glory from Statesville’s 8-by-12-foot size limits for flags flown at businesses.
