OAKLAND PARK, Fla. – A Broward County couple is being fined by a homeowner’s association for displaying a small gay pride flag in their home’s front yard.

Bob Plominski and Mike Ferrari say they were issued a citation telling them to take down the flag or pay a $50 daily fine. The Eastland Cove HOA in Oakland Park sent the violation notice on June 5 after receiving a complaint.

The South Florida couple says they had displayed the flag before and posted political signs with no problems.

The HOA board says their rules restrict residents to only display United States or military flags.
