The Vegas flag flap has been settled by the Nevada Supreme Court.

The court has ruled against a company that wanted to keep a 109-foot-high flagpole at a Las Vegas car dealership.

City officials maintained the tall pole, and a 30-by-60-foot flag, were more of a marketing gimmick than a patriotic symbol.

People in a nearby residential community complained about the noise, from the giant flapping flag on windy days.
