|Kuwaiti Ambassador to Bahrain Sheikh Azzam Al-Mubarak Al-Sabah explains nat''l flag incident during Gulf Cup match
MANAMA, Jan 7 (KUNA) -- The change in the red color of the Kuwaiti flag to
orange during the Gulf Cup match between Kuwait and Yemen was due to the
stadium lights effects, said Kuwaiti Ambassador to Bahrain Sheikh Azzam
Al-Mubarak Al-Sabah here Monday.
Sheikh Azzam told KUNA that low quality material which the flag was made of
and the stadium spotlights, resulted with an orange refelection to the red
color in the Kuwaiti flag.
The Kuwaiti diplomat stressed that the flags carried by a number of Kuwaiti
students during the match had no political connotations, adding that those
pictures exchanged within social media sites were totally misunderstood and
did not reflect the reality of the situation. (end)
