Miley Cyrus waves wrong flag at Spanish concert during Bangerz tour and doesn’t seem to notice
The singer flies the flag of the Basque Country, not Catalonia where the gig took place
Tuesday 17 June 2014
Spanish regional geography is not everyone’s area of expertise, as Miley Cyrus proved during a recent concert when she waved the wrong flag.
The Bangerz singer was playing in Barcelona, the capital of independence-seeking Catalonia, when she flew the flag of a different would-be independent nation – the Basque Country.
The red, green and white ikurriña flag is the symbol of the Basque Country and is seldom seen in Barcelona – until Cyrus arrived.
She, thus far, hasn’t appeared to have noticed the error and her most recent tweet urges her fans to nominate her for a VMA – the awards ceremony which infamously saw her gyrate against Robin Thicke last year.
During her Spanish stay, she also attracted controversy for taking her 14-year-old sister, Noah, on a night out round the city, and for sharing a topless picture of herself on Instagram, managing to swerve its strict nudity rules by holding her mobile phone in front of her chest.
