IOC technically allows display of Rising Sun flag at Tokyo 2020 Olympics


the International Olympic Committee has
announced a stance towards the Tokyo 2020 Olympic organizing committees
policy to not ban spectators from using the controversial Rising Sun flag at the
games r1 Zohan reports South Korean broadcaster SBS has reported that the
IOC has issued a response to an inquiry into the use of the Rising Sun flag at
the upcoming Olympics in Tokyo the IOC didn’t specifically respond to
the issue of banning the controversial flag during the event but only said all
Olympic stadiums should be free from political protests it said that if the
flag is used for political purposes they will then respond accordingly such
a response suggests the IOC won’t stop Japanese fans from bringing Rising Sun
flags into the stadium leaving the controversial issue unsettled the
response matches the stance of the Tokyo organising committee which said it sees
no reason to banned the flag during the event explaining that the committee
doesn’t think it’s inherently political the Rising Sun flag was used by the
Imperial Japanese Army during the World War two and is a highly sensitive issue
not only to South Korea but also to other countries that were invaded by
Japan meanwhile the South Korean government is stepping up efforts to
prevent the controversial flag from being taken into Olympic venues the
Ministry of Foreign Affairs said Japan needs to be more humble about owning up
to its historical legacy and should know what the flag means to Japan’s neighbors
and the Ministry of Culture Sports and Tourism said on Wednesday that a letter
will be sent to the IOC to deliver Seoul’s request the letter that is being
drafted intends to express the concerns of South Korea China and other Asian
countries that the presence of a sign of Japanese Imperialism will only be a
reminder of their painful past while it is yet to be determined who will send
the letter it is likely to be sent before the Chuseok holiday which begins

  1. who considers your garbage korean contribution to the world? all you do is complain about Japan. Live in the past fiend! Oh and today you are way more sexy btw caster LOL XD Thankyou for news casting, love getting chances to bash korean Only on Arirang, cause I can only understand english.

  2. I will be wearing the Rising Sun Flag, and I’ll be carrying it every where I go in Tokyo when me and my family are there in 2020. Don’t like the flag, you can just stay the fuck home. It’s that fucking simple.

  3. Good job, IOC! Don't take this matter seriously. More than 60 years have already passed since the end of war till SKorea has come to get hysterical at seeing Rising-Sun Flag. Has SKorea forgotten that Koreans fought the battle under that flag in war time??? I worry about SKorea's amnesia rather than hysteria.

  4. Another Korean nitpick. Rising sun is a popular, common design used everywhere. Macedonia adopts it as its national flag (should it be banned from Olympics participation?). If trying to link it to dark history, the flag designs of former colonial powers should also be subject to inquiry and sanctions. A problem stems from Korea's ignorance and prejudice. Be fair and reasonable.

  5. South Korea is free to boycott the Olympics if they are unhappy about the IOC's decision. Individual Korean athletes may be allowed to join Refugee Team.

  6. These imperialist Nazis war criminals of Japan are the worst and there Olympics should be boycotted by all Asians around the world. BOYCOTT, DIVEST AND SANCTION JAPAN . Support a BDS movement against Japan world wide. Don't forget you might get cancer and host of other illnesses by attending the radioactive Olympics in Fukushima too and get to eat radioactive food contaminated with nuclear waste poisoning included mutated fish off the Pacific from all the nuclear waste fumed into the Ocean in Fukushima Japan

  7. Simple fact. Japanese army was using rising sun flag during Pacific war and Japanese army conducted human experiment with 731 unit.

  8. Don’t you have something else to besides making a stupid news like this. Korean is a only country to make this kind of news. I do not see anybody saying this other than Korea. Go back to work. I hope Korea would boycott the Olympic due to the great rising sun flag in Tokyo.

  9. Simple fact. The reason we despise rising sun flag is it is a meaning of colonialization area, which is dark history for KOREA and other Asian-pacific nations today. Can you imagine that Germany uses Nazi flag in official national occasion? This is the way we think reasonably and unbiasedly. That symbol reminds people who were exploited harshly and trampled by Japanese imperialism and its historial wrongdoing is totally against human rights and peace all around the world nowadays. It doesn't matter no matter how it is popular or something. If it is considered wrong, we will fight to correct the thing that we think that it is right. I hope more and more people around the world become interested in Asian-pacific history and enlightened and realize Japanese imperialism is equally be translated to German Nazi.

  10. the rising sun flag was resitricted for some time. but the us lifted the ban among a bunch of different bloody concessions to japan

  11. RISING SUN FLAG MEANS CRIMINAL SYMBOL KILLING OTHER COUNTRIES PEOPLE , MASSACRE , RAPE BY JAPANESE GOVERNMENT. ALSO THINK TWICE BEFORE ATTENDING TOKYO OLYMPIC 2020 . FUKUSHIMA RADIOACTIVE CAUSE 'CANCER" WITHIN 10 YEARS.

  12. Many countries will BOYCOTT Tokyo Olympic 2020 following reasons; Fukushima Radioactive, Lying History, Using RISING SUN CRIMINAL FLAG.

  13. Japan loosing Democracy. No freedom Press. Innocent nice Japanese Civilians don't know ABE sick Hitler act to their own people and to the World.

  14. IOC COMMISSION NEED GO BACK TO SCHOOL TO LEARN ASIAN HISTORY TO UNDERSTAND MEANING OF "RISING SUN FLAG" SAME AS " NAZI" FLAG.

  15. After World War II, Germany no longer use the Nazi flags used during the war, only has used their own German flags.
    The reason is that there is Germany's consideration and care that prevents the people of Germany's neighbor countries from recalling their memories of past Germany's invasion and historical suffering. But Japan still uses The rising sun flag despite Japan has the Japanese flag. This is a behavior with no consideration for neighboring countries that Japan has invaded in the past.
    This is evidence that Japan has no reflection, regret or apology for World War II. Japan has said that it has healed the wounds by Japanese money and Japan has announced they apologized very much, It is very unreasonable to say that Japan has apologized and be proud of the flag used to invade other countries.
    need to learn from Germany

    If one of your neighbors invades your house and built roads, bridges and rail roads in order to steal your grains and assets, and also to use your house as a back yard for preparing to invade the next door bigger house… and pushed you not to use your language and to change you name by his naming rule, and made you as a slave,, when you shout out independence, he hit you and tortured you to die.
    building all of them was for him not for you to gain more benefits from you. Do you think he was a great Donator of you without any reason but just love you?
    If you had this situation would you be pleased and feel thank him? Could you say he developed your house and you?
    Non-sense, Japanese government has hidden many historical facts to their people that would be shamed to them.

  16. It is only controversial in Korea with the fake history. You guys already burned it, ripped it apart, doing all sorts of barbaric performance. Stop disturbing/annoying Japan and US any further. It is seriously annoying and childish.

  17. So in Korea, anything anti-Japan is a "freedom of speech", and any anti-Korean comments from Japanese is "discrimination" what a selfish nation.

  18. Since South Krorean liars hate rising sun flags because it remainds the sun . so south Koreans should boycott Tokyo olympics and everyone is happy.

  22. The Rising Sun Flag and the iron cross are the same thing. There is the same thing as the flag of the Nazis called the government-supported social flag.Japan does not use it from the beginning.The US, who won the war with Japan, is not protesting.South Korea says it was a pain for Asian countries. But Europe and America colonized Asia and Africa.Korea is merger, and Japan does not profit until now. It is not exploited. Japan was a deficit by the support in Korea.

  23. Im a Filipino, during WW2 Japan also invaded our country the Philippines but i never heard Filipinos Saying that Flag should be ban from Tokyo Olympics its only South Korea making drama and its only generating hate, Sk is stuck in the past they should learn to move on.

  24. We should start making mushroom cloud Olympic medals. Mushroom has been around a long time and is very healthy for our body. We should promote mushroom all over the world.

  25. South Korea committed atrocities during Vietnam Wars by raping and murdering thousands of innocent civilians. The South Korean Government has never admitted to commit the crime against humanity. South Korean flag is the one to be banned.

  26. The Rising Sun flag has no place in the Olympics. It is a symbol of racism and exploitation, the same as the Nazi swastika. Please sign this petition and help to ban it from the public sphere! Thank you. @t

  27. Here Japanese always say they don't care about this Korean press and it's not a big deal for them but, in fact, they always come here and start complaining things. What wrong with you guys? Does this news bother you that much? Or does someone from up there let you come here and make a counterargument? Are you from the government? Do you happen to get paid for this? Hmm.. I don't get you.
