French-Korean flag

[French-Korean flag]by Antonio Martins & Zeljko Heimer

Yahoo France had yesterday on its World Cup frontpage a picture showing a huge French Tricolore flag with the Korean national symbol added in the middle of the white stripe.

Unfortunately, nothing was said on the place where the picture was taken. I guess it was in Pusan, where France played against Uruguay (0-0).

The flag might have been made by Korean supporters of the French team and would be in this case similar to the French-Corsican flag seen during the 1984 European Championships, or by French supporters willing to honour the flag of the host country.
