Scandal: Austria’s Chancellor Kurz welcomed with Latvian flag

A big mistake was made by the government’s protocol on Friday morning when the Chancellor of Austria, Sebastian Kurz arrived in Skopje, where he was met by Prime Minister Zoran Zaev outside the Government building.

Instead of Austria’s flag, the flag of Latvia was placed.

The flags of the two countries are similar, red with a horizontal white stripe in the middle, with the Austrian divided into 3 equal parts, and the Latvian white stripe is narrower.
