Draft Czech-Roma flags vandalised at outdoor exhibition space
An outdoor exhibition of draft versions of a joint Czech-Roma flag has been vandalised. The series of works, which are on located a site called the Artwall on a Prague embankment, are by Slovak artist Tomáš Rafa and are intended to spur a discussion on co-existence between the majority population and the Roma minority. Earlier this week somebody threw paint at all seven of the proposed flag designs, which combine the Czech tricolour with an international Roma flag created in the early 1970s. The far-right Workers Party of Social Justice have filed a complaint against the project, which they say breaches the law on use of Czech state symbols.
