WOODBURY, Conn. (AP) Plans to fly flags along the state-designated Antiques Trail in Woodbury have run into zoning regulations that ban flag signs.

The Republican-American reports that Karen Reddington-Hughes, president of the Woodbury Antiques Dealers Association, paid for a flag displaying a logo created by the state Office of Tourism for the trail.

She had planned to place an order for any of the 15 businesses that appear on the antiques trail website.

Zoning Commission Chairman Robert Clarke proposed withholding enforcement of flag violators while considering a change to the regulations. He says any approval of flag signs would likely not apply solely to antiques trail members.

The antiques trail began in 2009 as a pair of signs on Interstate 84 and has grown into a statewide marketing effort similar to the Connecticut Wine Trail.
