Several countries hold restrictions on the use of flags and symbols from the German Third Reich (1933 – 1945) and the Nazi Party, with some countries out right banning their display or use.
Some symbols, such as the swastika, predate the German Third Reich and so the display of non-Nazi swastikas is acceptable.
Due to the legal restrictions and nature of the subject matter, any Nazi related flag, symbol, or memorabilia is unsuitable within content offered for commercial use. Additionally, any content featuring memorials erected in memory of holocaust victims is unsuitable in commercial use content.
Nazi related flags, symbols or memorabilia may appear in content offered for editorial-use only, provided these objects appear in appropriate context, as part of a greater story, and have historical value.
