After receiving a few complaints about the Palestinian flag hanging on Lincoln Avenue in Linolnwood, Illinois, the village’s Human Relations Commission held a meeting for community members to voice their concerns.

The Village Hall in Lincolnwood was filled to capacity Aug. 11 for the meeting about the Palestinian flag hanging in the village held by the Human Relations Commission. Many of the attendees were given 3 minutes to speak to whether or not the flag should be kept. | Nader Ihmoud

People spoke for the flag and against it but in the end the Human Relations Commission voted to keep the flags that hang during August for Diversity Month in tact. Those who asked for the flag to be removed gave reasons such as: “Palestine isn’t a recognized state by the United States.” While those who were for the Palestinian flag mentioned how the Palestinian-Americans who live and work in Lincolnwood have contributed greatly to society.

Above is a video with a few key moments from the August 11 meeting at the Village Hall.
