At the Gander RV in Statesville, an American Flag is causing a lot of conversation. That's mostly because of its size. 

The 40 by 80-foot flag can be seen from Interstate 77 as you enter the city.

The city has been pushing Gander RV, formerly Camping World, to replace the flag with a smaller one. The city is attempting to fine them $50 a day --dating all the way back to October 2018.
