The North Carolina city has voted against the flying of really big flags, holding its ground against reality TV star Marcus Lemonis' huge Stars and Stripes. News outlets report the Statesville City Council voted down changes to the flag ordinance Monday night, June 17, 2019. That means flags in Statesville must be no larger than 25 feet by 40 feet (7.6 meters by 12 meters). That's roughly half the size of the American flag that Lemonis has unfurled outside his Gander RV company. (Jennifer Munday/Camping World, AP)
