THE CHARLOTTE COMMUNITY RELIES ON NO MATTER WHAT.

THIS IS A VERY BIG AMERICAN FLAG.

THERE IS A DEBATE ON THIS AND WHETHER OR NOT IT IS A PATRIOTIC DISPLAY OR JUST TOO BIG AND A PUBLIC NUISANCE.

STATESVILLE IS NOT A FAN OF THE FLAG.

THEY'RE SUING THE BUSINESS WHO FLIES IT TO GET IT TAKEN DOWN.

GINA ESPOSITO DUG DEEPER TO FIND OUT WHY.

Reporter: THIS DEBATE HAS TO DO WITH THE SIZE OF THE FLAG.

IT IS OFF I-77.

THE WIND HAS IT WRAPPED AROUND THE POLE.

WHEN IT IS FULLY SPREAD OUT, IT IS ABOUT 40 FEET TALL AND 80 FEET WIDE.

ANYTHING THAT HAS TO DO WITH THE AMERICAN FLAG SHOULD BE HONORED.

Reporter: SOME PEOPLE CAN'T BELIEVE THIS AMERICAN FLAG IS THE CENTER OF A LAW SUIT.

STATESVILLE IS TAKING LEGAL ACTION AGAINST GANDER RV AND CAMPING WORLD FOR THE FLAG ON ITS PROPERTY.

THE LAWSUIT CLAIMS A FLAG WITHIN 100 FEET OF A HIGHWAY CANNOT BE LARGER THAN 25 BY 40.

THE ONE ON THEIR PROPERTY IS NEARLY DOUBLE.

IT SAYS THE CITY CITED THE COMPANY AND WARNED THEM OF THE VIOLATION.

NOW THE SUIT CLAIMS THE COMPANY WILL BE FINED $50 A DAY GOING BACK TO OCTOBER 15, 2018, AND UNTIL A JUDGMENT IS MADE OR THE FLAG IS TAKEN DOWN.

I DON'T CARE IF IT GOES TO $500 A DAY.

THE FLAG IS NOT COMING DOWN.

Reporter: THE CEO OF CAMPING WORLD AND GANDER RV TOLD ME SIMILAR FLAGS ARE UP AT HIS MORE THAN 200 STORES ACROSS THE COUNTRY INCLUDING SEVERAL CITIES IN NORTH CAROLINA LIKE CONCORD, NONE OF WHICH HAVE HAD PROBLEMS WITH THEM.

FROM OUR PERSPECTIVE, IF THE FLAG POLE ISN'T HURTING ANYBODY AND IT ISN'T A DANGER TO ANYBODY, THE SIZE OF THE FLAG IS SOMEWHAT IRRELEVANT.

Reporter: HE TELLS ME IT IS PERSONAL TO HIM.

MY FAMILY HAVE BEEN CAR DEALERS SINCE THE 1960s AND A KEY TRADEMARK WAS ALWAYS FLYING OUR FLAG IN OUR DEALERSHIP IN SOUTH FLORIDA.

MY FAMILY IS LARGELY IMMIGRANTS OF THE COUNTRY.

Reporter: HE SAYS HE'S GONE TO GREAT LENGTHS TO KEEP IT AND.
