I believe the HOA should make an amendment to the rules to allow a flag pole in the yard. If they want to impose height restrictions, that could be up for debate but they should at least vote on it or something.
Actually that wasn't specified in the original rules but the Board voted to make it that way on the grounds that a Flag pole wasn't pretty enough! On a side note I can't see myself belonging to an HOA because I think I should be able to do almost anything I see fit on my own property!
