CDU politician Thomas Strobl has spoken out in favor of a ban on imperial flags. The Baden-Württemberg Minister of the Interior believes they are endangering the free democratic basic order.

Baden-Württemberg’s Minister of the Interior, Thomas Strobl (CDU), wants to ban imperial flags and imperial war flags. “In order to protect the basic liberal democratic order, we must speak out for taking consistent action against the abuse of imperial flags, imperial war flags and other symbols by members of the far-right scene,” Strobl told the “Schwäbische Zeitung” (Thursday).

He wanted to urge his colleagues to support a nationwide ban. The 16 State Ministers should jointly call on the Federal Minister of the Interior and the Federal Minister of Justice to investigate a corresponding settlement.
