Businessmen forced to take down the Star-Spangled Banner at military show

Several businessmen who put up their booths at the NATO DAYS military show in Ostrava, Czech Republic were forced by the organizers to remove (take down) American flags from their posts, according to TV NOVA evening news broadcast [link to be provided soon]. Among the businessmen were a donut salesman, or a military souvenir vendor, or a re-enactment fan who had his military jeep on display.

Journalists tried repeatedly to call the organizers to ask for statement but they would always hang up on them.

I don’t get it… why would they want anyone to remove/take down a U.S. flag during a military show? If they had a legitimate reason [which I doubt], they should have named it… At least nobody would think they are assholes. Like yours truly…
