Seo Gyeong-deok, a professor at Sungshin Women's University, announced on the 14th that the Federation of International Football Associations (FIFA) deleted the image of the Japanese Rising Sun Flag from its World Cup account after receiving strong protests from Korean netizens.

Professor Seo said on his SNS on this day, “A promotional image for the FIFA Club World Cup to be held in Saudi Arabia from the 13th to the 22nd was posted on the official FIFA World Cup SNS account.” He added, “Urawa Reds, who are participating as last year’s Asian Champions League winners, He pointed out, “In the image introduced, the European group Shoya Nakajima appeared on the main page, and the Rising Sun flag was used in the background.” 메이저사이트 백링크

Professor Seo introduced, “As a result of many Korean netizens who saw this protesting through comments and DMs, the Rising Sun flag was deleted and replaced with a different image.”

He continued, “The rising sun flag has been used by the Japanese to symbolize large catches and childbirth, but it was also the flag that Japan displayed at the forefront when it invaded Asian countries,” adding, “It symbolizes Japan’s militarism and imperialism.”

Therefore, “the use of the rising sun flag design by an international organization such as FIFA is an act that reminds Asians of the horrors of war crimes committed by Japan in the past,” and “the rising sun flag cheering by the Japanese cheering team at the last Qatar World Cup was recognized by FIFA. He said that the “immediate restraint by the government” was done in the same context.

In this regard, Professor Seo said, “We will continue to eliminate Rising Sun Flag designs that may appear again in international sporting events in the future,” and requested, “We ask for your continued interest and reporting on the Rising Sun Flag.” 슬롯
