Letter: Stripe-tease

WITH REGARD to "A PR mission impossible: Cool Germania" (3 January), the representation of the national flag accompanying the text contravenes article 22, paragraph 1, sentence 1 of the German constitution. This states unambiguously: "The national flag is black-red-gold". We cannot change the orientation of the stripes without upsetting our neighbours, so the only way to legally change the flag would involve changing the order of the colours. This would most likely lead to court action from the all-powerful nudist lobby, who resent having to buy new towels.
