    Locals shocked as Nazi banner unfurled in Nice

    Published: 29 Sep 2015 16:01 GMT+02:00

    Residents in the southern French city of Nice were left gobsmacked after they witnessed men unfurling a Nazi banner over a public building. Thankfully it turned out there was nothing to panic about.

    In hindsight it might have been a good idea for authorities in Nice to alert the public that a film about the Nazis was being made in town.

    On Monday passersby were left speechless when an enormous Nazi banner was draped over the Palais de la Prefecture, a government building in Nice's Old Town.

    A witness said that people were unsure if it was intended as a joke or to deliberately provoke the bystanders.


    "As soon as two men appeared on the roof to unfurl the banner, a crowd started to shout," the bystander told the Nice-Matin newspaper.

    "Obviously it caused some strong feelings."
    Another witness, Andrew Gentry, told the BBC that the scene was surreal.

    "People started screaming... they were really agitated," he said.

    "There was nothing around to explain what was going on. The scene was just surreal." nice.jpg

    I downloaded the image to put in the story and without thinking labelled it for the location where it happened.

    So for about 30 seconds I had an image of a Nazi flag on my computer with the name Nice.jpg. :D

    It was too damned big to stay stashed away in my attic, so I gave it to the French. They gave me a white flag immediately, btw.

    @Beck claimed recently during a discussion that he wasn't a Nazi, and seemed rather puzzled that I had made the association.
