“Many Korean users protested in the comments and direct messages (DMs), and the image was removed and replaced with a different image.” “The flag has also been used by Japanese people as a symbol of abundance and childbirth,” Seo said, “but it also symbolizes Japan’s militarism and imperialism, as it was the flag that Japan flew when it invaded Asian countries in the past.””The use of the flag design by an international organization like FIFA reminds Asians of the horrors of Japan’s war crimes in the past,” he said. “At last year’s World Cup in Qatar, the Japanese supporters were immediately banned by FIFA for chanting the flag.””Through examples such as FIFA’s ban on cheering for the flag and the removal of the flag from official social media accounts, 스포츠토토존 we will continue to work to eliminate the flag design from future international sporting events.”
