In Huntington Beach, California, voters approved Charter Amendment No. 2, which restricts the flags that can be flown on city-owned properties.

Only certain flags are permitted, including the U.S. flag, state and city flags, POW-MIA flag, armed forces flags, and the Olympic flag during the Summer Games.

The amendment is seen as a response to the pride flag, which the council had previously approved to fly annually in June.

The vote reflects a divide between Republicans and Democrats, with LGBT activists expressing outrage.

The city’s conservative shift and the painting of pride flags in protest outside the library have sparked debate.

The Biden administration faced criticism for flying the “progress pride” flag, a variation with additional stripes, outside the White House.

The issue raises questions about flag display guidelines and the evolving demographics of LGBT identification in the U.S.
