European football championship in Germany

Surfing tip: Home Euro 2024 – The Euro Cup calendar in Germany

Black, red and gold on the patrol car? – Some federal states are against it.

German flags on police vehicles should not be visible during the European Football Championship in Berlin. This is not permitted, said a Berlin spokeswoman. police in reference to the obligation of neutrality. During the Euro Cup, which will be held from mid-June to mid-July, six matches, including the final, will be played in the capital and thousands of football fans are expected in the city.

Federal states such as Schleswig-Holstein, Bremen and Thuringia act similarly to Berlin. There, German flags on company vehicles are taboo. In countries such as Bavaria, Baden-Württemberg, North Rhine-Westphalia or Saxony, where Euro Cup matches are also scheduled, there is no such regulation.

“The North Rhine-Westphalian police, as in the past Europe– and the World Championship, seem politically neutral,” said a spokesman for the Ministry of the Interior in Düsseldorf. Above all, it will be cosmopolitan, professional and close to people. “Before this was something that was taken for granted.” No order or anything similar is anticipated.

The Baden-Württemberg Ministry of the Interior also has no intention of imposing a corresponding ban on police officers. Officials know that when it comes to their appearance, they must pay special attention to the confidence they demonstrate in their position. Therefore, explicit rules, for example on the handling of flags, banners or face paint, are not necessary.

The assessment in Schleswig-Holstein is different: the police are subject to the requirement of neutrality, says the Ministry of the Interior in Kiel. Officials must act professionally, neutrally and in accordance with law and order. “This clearly states that flags or flags cannot be placed on patrol cars during the European Football Championship.”

The Thuringian Ministry of the Interior is of the same opinion: regardless of the European football championship, the police generally do not display any flags. If a flag was found on a company vehicle, officials would be spoken to and the flag removed, according to a ministry spokesperson.

Saxony-Anhalt is more willing to reach a compromise: the Ministry of the Interior in Magdeburg maintains that, in principle, the display of car flags cannot be allowed. However, I understand police officers who show their enthusiasm for the sport by displaying private German flags on appropriate occasions during the European Football Championship.

“The ministry will tolerate this behavior – as during the fairy tale summer of 2006 – as long as it does not conflict with police tactical requirements or traffic safety concerns.”
