Opposition-supporting daily upset over miscolored coat of arms


A reader of Fidesz-supporting Magyar Nemzet wrote in to the daily to point out how in the government-sponsored posters placed at busy intersections this past weekend on the occasion of the 53rd anniversary of the 1956 revolution and 20th anniversary of the third republic, the Hungarian coat of arms was incorrectly colored. Magyar Nemzet, which never misses an opportunity to criticize the government, pointed out how in the image on the left taken from the posters created by Leon Kft,, the small crown was colored white and the green hills had stripes in them. As the paper pointed out by including two other images, the small crown is yellow or gold in the correct coat of arms (middle), and the stripes are only included when the coat of arms is rendered in black and white (right). And if you think that’s getting upset over nothing, imagine if those green hills had been blue instead.
