Woman almost evicted over flag hanging in her apartment window

HAPPY VALLEY, Ore. (WKRC) -- An Oregon woman was being threatened with eviction for not removing her American flag from the window of her home.

Elodia Royce has a flag that's been hanging in her window for six years. She hasn't had any problems with it until she received a notice to take it down.

Another resident in the complex Royce complained about the flag after they were reprimanded for hanging a colored drape. Window coverings like that aren't allowed in the complex.

Royce refused to remove her flag from the window, but on the day before her eviction deadline the two sides reached a compromise.

Royce says the apartment agreed to install a flag pole outside the apartment and she'll get another one inside.
