(News Source) —The Carroll County School Board has voted to ban certain flags from being displayed on school property -- including gay pride flags.

The board -- including the student representative -- voted four to one for the ban last night.

The board voted against flags that display political positions but students may still wear symbols -- such as the gay pride symbol -- on their clothing.

A parents' group had raised concerns over the donation of pride flags to be displayed in classrooms.
