Vexillophobia – for underkastelsen


   Put out more flags

Excerpt from: http://www.standpointmag.co.uk/node/113/full

“…Dutch school officials order two boys to remove Dutch flags from their backpacks because Moroccan students might find them “provocative”. A Swedish high school sends two girls home for having tiny Swedish flags on their sweaters; another bans national team shirts from class photos lest the flags on the shirts seem “xenophobic”. In England, prison officers are directed to stop wearing English flag pins – and a black dustman is instructed to shed a bandanna featuring St. George’s cross – for fear Muslims will cry “racist”.

Call it vexillophobia (vexillum, of course, being Latin for “flag”)…”
