Søren Krarup wants to replace green flags in the upcoming celebration of the Danish Royal Guards' 350 year jubilee celebration.
Green is traditionally the color of hope, but for Søren Krarup of the Danish People's Party it brings up repulsion when they're presented on a flag. The green color namely represents Islamism, he thinks.
Just ten green flags will be part of the facade decoration of the guards' barracks in Rosenborg Castle in the heart of Copenhagen when they celebrate their 350 year jubilee this summer.
Krarup says that it's ugly and can't be prevented from being understood as an Islamic symbol. Instead he thinks they should use the traditional red-white flags, that dominate the decorations.
Wednesday in parliament he asked army minister Søren Gade for his position on the issue, but the minister wasn't interested in going into the issue.
