‘I had my car for several days covered with the flag. My car was very old and rusty so I was arrested by the traffic police. When they saw the flag, they called the state police and they accused me of degradation of state symbols, because my ass was sitting on the flag. I was just driving in the city in a regular way and wanted to pick up the mother of Susanne Widl. We were arrested for only one night and the next day we could go home. At the trial I could prove that I am not guilty of degradation of state symbols. The flag was made at a state factory. I had ordered it as a true citizen from the state factory itself. The photo was made after the arrest.’
