An unexpected incident interrupted the opening ceremony of Nyárádszereda City Days event on Friday: Hysterical Romanian officials stormed out of the opening event due to the presence of Székely and Hungarian flags in the building.
The two invited Romanian county officials complained that alongside the Romanian and European Union flags the Hungarian and the Székely flags were also displayed. Nyárádszereda Mayor Sádor Tóth told the Romanian dignitaries that the Hungarian flag was displayed because a Hungarian sister city delegation was also attending the opening ceremony.
The mayor said the hysterical the bureaucrats' attitude was childish and ridiculous in the same time. It is ridiculous that by using the flag issue as a pretext these people try to manipulate public opinion said the mayor. The removal of the Hungarian flag would have been a breach of diplomatic protocol, an insult of Hungarian guests.
