Flags and Flagpoles:

What you need to Know;

We often get questions regarding what the HOA rules are in respect to the display of flags and flagpoles.  MPRHOA allows what the current Federal and State laws dictate as follows:                                   

ARS 33-1808. Flag display;  A. “Notwithstanding any provision in the community documents, an association shall not prohibit the outdoor front yard or backyard display of any of the following: 1. The American flag or an official or replica of a flag of the United States army, navy, air force, marine corps or coast guard by an association member on that member’s property if the American flag or military flag is displayed in a manner consistent with the federal flag code (P.L. 94-344; 90 Stat. 810; 4 United States Code sections 4 through 10).  2. The POW/MIA flag.  3. The Arizona state flag. 4. An Arizona Indian nations flag. 5. The Gadsden flag.   B. The association shall adopt reasonable rules and regulations regarding the placement and manner of display of the American flag, the military flag, the POW/MIA flag, the Arizona state flag or an Arizona Indian nations flag. 

The association rules may regulate the location and size of flagpoles, may limit the member to displaying no more than two flags at once and may limit the height of the flagpole to no more than the height of the rooftop of the member’s home but shall not prohibit the installation of a flagpole in the front yard or backyard of the member’s property”.  

Just thought you should know.  And when the HOA becomes aware of any new changes in laws we try to update our website and rule booklet in a timely manner.  If you have any questions on location, size, height, etc., of a flagpole, please contact the Office.  We are here to help.
