An Italian Flag Raising Ceremony has been held this morning at Danbury City Hall. Mayor Mark Boughton says the ceremony honors members of the Italian American community in Danbury. Danbury has done hundreds of flag raisings over the years and another one is taking place this morning.
But Boughton says it's been pointed out to City officials several times that the Federal Flag Code states the flag of two countries can't be flown on the same pole, one underneath the other. The entry way to City Hall is being redone, and a second flag pole has been ordered so that Danbury can be fully compliant during flag raising ceremonies.
But he notes that it won't be here in time for this weekend's ceremony.
