South Korea Asks IOC To Ban Japan's Rising Sun Flag From Tokoyo Games.

: 09/11/2019 - 10:12

South Korea has formally asked the International Olympic Committee to ban the Japanese "rising sun" flag at next year's Tokyo Games.

Seoul says it's a symbol of Japan's brutal wartime past.

Tokyo organisers say the flag isn't seen as a political statement, is widely used, and will be allowed in stadiums.
