People demonstrating in June 2008 in Göteborg against the increasing government watch over the Internet and claiming Sweden and the European Union are becoming more and more like Communist dictatorships, which they don't like, use the flag of People's Republic of China with red replaced by medium blue.

Anti-European flag used in Poland - Image by Ivan Sache, 18 December 2002

A TV guide shows a picture probably taken during a anti-European Union demonstration somewhere in Poland. Two flags are shown, a Polish national flag and a European Union flag defaced with a red cross in saltire. There is no legend to the picture, only a credit to AFP (Agence France Presse).
The flag undoubtly promotes rejection of the adherence to European Union. The picture is too small to check the details of the flag but the "no" cross was probably made with red sticky tape.
