City Council proposes banning occupation symbols

Aug 25, 2006
By TBT staff

TALLINN - The Tallinn City Council backed an initiative by the opposition Reform Party proposing that the government ban a display of occupation regime symbols at public events.
Tallinn asked the government to prohibit the use of the flag, the coat of arms and other official symbols of countries which have occupied the Republic of Estonia. Clearly identifiable symbols that instigate hatred are also included in the ban.
The Ministry of Justice has already embarked a bill of this effort on a coordination round from ministry to ministry.
According to the bill, the ban would apply to the public display and dissemination of symbols representing the Soviet Union and its constituent republics, the Nazi German party and the S.S..
The ministry clarified that these symbols can be used for education, research, artistic, commercial and journalistic purposes.
