City Orders Firefighters to Remove US Flags From Trucks – They’re Offensive (Video)

The city of Seminole, Florida ordered firefighters to remove American flags from their trucks after receiving complaints from local citizens. The flags were offensive.

FOX4Now reported:

Florida fire fighters say the city apparently got two complaints about American flags being flown from fire trucks.

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.
