The American flag will continue flying at University Mall, but not at the front entrance where people are used to seeing it.
The flag was recently taken down and the pole removed, making some wonder if the flag was being removed for a new restaurant tenant.
“As far as I can tell it’s been there since the mall’s been there,” said jeweler Ken Jackson, owner of Wentworth & Sloan.
Red Bull Asian Bistro is moving into the space to the left of the Estes Drive entrance May 1 and will have outdoor dining. But Peter de Leon , the mall’s general manager, says that’s not why the flag was taken down.
