A Taiwanese automotive store in the Hsinchu County town of Zhubei has recently come under fire for selling a Nazi flag sticker labeled as the “flag of Germany”.
Israeli representative Asher Yarden urged Taiwanese officials to take swift action to remove the offending item, as it represented a regime of hatred. Yarden also encouraged authorities to educate citizens on the meaning behind the swastika so that they may understand its true nature, according to Apple Daily.
The store manager, Ho Tung-tsan (何東燦), said in an interview with CNA that he did not realize that the sticker was in the shop’s inventory and quickly pulled the item from their shelves. They also promised to be more watchful of their stock in the future.
