he Minnesota Court of Appeals has ruled that a Buffalo construction company owner is not violating city ordinances by flying a large Trump flag from a crane.

The Monday ruling reverses the city of Buffalo’s determination that Jay Johnson’s 30-by-50 foot flag reading “TRUMP 2020 Keep America Great” violated its ordinances on size restrictions and the attaching of signs to equipment.

According to the ruling, the size restriction ordinance does not apply to “non-commercial” signs, while restrictions on attaching signs to equipment effectively deny Johnson’s free speech rights.
