On September 17, Panamanian Deputy Javier Ortega of the Democratic Revolutionary Party introduced a bill that seeks to ban public and private displays of foreign flags in the country.

“We are aware of the great number of foreign nationals residing in our country, however, it does not seem right to have such an open and permanent display of another country’s colors in our streets and avenues, as well as in private homes, buildings, and structures of all kinds,” Ortega wrote in the bill.


The bill, if signed into law, would exempt embassies, consulates, and other diplomatic buildings, as well as “the occasional foreigner who attends the stadium with a little flag of their country,” according to Ortega’s bill.
