A married couple in Germany are taking legal action because a Borussia Dortmund flag in a neighbor's back yard makes too much noise, and prevents them from reading in peace.

German newspaper Der Western identified the couple as Jutta and Walter H from the town of Hemer, about 16 miles south-east of Dortmund.

"I couldn't care less what is hanging there, it's a nuisance," Jutta H told the newspaper.

Her husband said the complaint had nothing to do with the team. He said he is a Duisburg fan but has not been to a game since the late 1970s.

"This is only about the inconvenience," the 62-year-old man said.

A spokesman for Arnsberg administrative court told The Associated Press on Friday that the case will not be heard for a few months, "until summer at the earliest".

Meanwhile, a Dortmund spokesman said the club do not get involved with disputes between neighbors.
