There is a place where IFS was promoted using the war criminal flag.
Shouldn't places promoting IFS using war criminals flag be canceled?
Please see this point from the FS organisers rules:
Ingress First Saturdays are events that aim to connect agents and foster community across nationalities, races, genders, ages, religions, and ideologies. Please respect that spirit. If IFS-UN Members find Organisers or other members of the community are working against the spirit of FS, they may nominate new organisers for the event, cancel the event completely, or in the worst cases, suspend people or cities from running an event.
I'm in discussion with the event organiser to have these issues fixed urgently
Have you talked to them?
However, promotional images using war criminals have not been deleted yet.
There is no ripple, so directly addressing the matter,
It does not correspond to the nationality, ideology and political neutrality you have talked about.
It’s not their fault, as they might be using it without knowledge that the flag holds war criminal meanings.
First, let me explain about the war criminal flag(Rising Sun Flag).
Japan fought in World War II in Asia-Pacific, including the United States. And Japan was defeated.
At that time, the flag used by the Japanese military was the "Rising Sun Flag".
The Japanese army committed many atrocities, including Japanese military **** slavery and human experiment under the colonization(e.g. 731 unit), and this particular flag "Rising Sun Flag" symbolizes the Japanese army and navy in history.
In May, some agents uses images based on the Rising Sun Flag and registered it in the ingress community.

And in June it was also used to promote IFS.
This is wrong.
Please request the removal of the photo and in Twitter or cancel the IFS events related.
Where is it used in connection with a June event? I can't see it.
I don't see any military or political flags anywhere...
The background was used in the shape of the "Rising Sun Flag".
Would you approve if someone created a background with "Hakenkreuz"?
"Rising Sun Flag" has the same meaning as "Hakenkreuz".
The" Rising Sun Flag" has conflict.
If you looked for the information, you would have seen the article below.
Different colors do not change the meaning.
Please request the removal of the image or cancel the IFS events related.
No it doesn't. It's the current naval ensign of the Japanese SDF. In that context it's totally appropriate in that there is an active SDF base in the adjacent city.
I know it's used as a flag for the Japanese Self-Defense Forces today.
However, the flag means Japanese imperialism.
The Self-Defense Forces ship, which raised the Rising Sun Flag, failed to enter South Korea.
The Japanese Self-Defense Forces' use of the Rising Sun Flag is an act that ignores Japan's past atrocities.
