Attention: No foreign flags in Nice during the world cup!

Yesterday, the mayor of Nice, Christian Estrosi, has interdicted waving foreign flags in Nice during the world cup, allegedly for "noise control".

No, its not the 1st of April and it is not a joke.

I do not care a lot about football but in this case I hope the German team will present him a proper reply.

While I am amused I realise that flags are very emotive things. There are continual riots in part of the UK (I.e Belfast) over this. In specific regard to the World Cup I understand notices have also had to be put up that the flag of the Ivory Coast - one of the participants -is not that of the Irish Republic (which it is if you display it upside down).

Not that there was risk of confusion. Because Ireland wisely stayed out of this madness. :)
