Brent Greer painted his home to look like the American flag.

BRADENTON, Fla. – A Florida man said he was so tired of being hounded by his city’s code enforcement department about the condition of his home, that he decided to make a patriotic change.

Brent Greer painted his house to look like an American flag. He also painted a sign to thank his neighbors for their support.

Greer said it should not be up to the city to tell him what his house should or should not look like.

“[The paint job is] to remind the city and all those who live here that this is America. This is a free country. This is my home,” Greer said.

Greer said he planned to paint the Liberty Bell on the second floor of his house ahead of his June 17 code enforcement board hearing.
