Town officials are standing by an order that Hingham firefighters remove the “thin blue line” flags from fire trucks, reports The Metro West Daily News.

At a meeting, dozens of protestors against the order waved American flags and held signs that said “We support and pray for police.” Those who supported the order held signs that said “Black Lives Matter” and “Justice for Breonna Taylor.”

Fire Chief Steve Murphy and Police Chief Glenn Olsson told personnel they’d need to remove the flags.
