Polish anti-European flag (2002)

[Polish anti-EU flag]by Ivan Sache

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.
