LAGUNA BEACH (AP) – The decision to include a brightly colored American flag graphic on the side of freshly painted police cars will be taken up again by leaders of a small coastal city in Southern California.

The Laguna Beach City Council will decide at its Tuesday meeting whether to keep the logo or choose an alternative.

Some residents feel the red, white and blue design is too aggressive while others are surprised that anyone would object to the American flag.

The council agreed earlier this year to repaint its squad cars in black and white with the stars and stripes running through the word “police” on the doors. The city has 11 police vehicles.

The proposed graphic that the council approved in February was a more muted version of the design that now appears on the cars.
