Boston Flag Flap Costs City 2 Million Dollars

The city of Boston is agreeing to pay more than two-million-dollars over the refusal to fly a flag with a red Christian cross on City Hall Plaza.

The U.S. Supreme Court ruled in June that the city violated the First Amendment rights of the group Camp Constitution with its denial.

The group had sought to fly the flag to recognize Constitution Day in September of 2017, but the city denied its permit request.

The flag was raised over City Hall Plaza this past August.
