PUCHONG: Well you read it right, a house located at Bandar Bukit Puchong has two flags, the Kreigsflagge, which is white and black and a Nazi flag called the Kreigsmarine, which is predominantly red.
The Star Online went to visit the housing area where the two flags were flying high hoping to look for the owner but he or she was nowhere to be seen. There was a tenant at the house and said that the owner is a German graphic designer who has stayed there for eight months.
“He is a nice person and he recently raised these flags. I have been here for just a month.
“I do not know if he is a Nazi follower, you should ask him,” said the tenant who did not want to be identified.
The Star Online tried their best to reach out to owner but no one responded to the call but eventually the house owner phoned back and when asked about the flags, said: “It was just for fun. I do not want to further comment on this.”
Neighbours was not aware that one of the flags was a Nazi flag and they thought they were decorative flags.
“He does not cause any problem, he is always out on his own doing his stuff,” said the neighbour who also did not want to be identified.
Another neighbour also said that the house owner was a very calm man and he mixed with the neighbours well.
The Kriegsflagge, which was in existence from 1871 to 1872, was the German Imperial Navy war ensign while the Kreigsmarine, which was in existence from 1938-1945 was the war ensign of Nazi’s navy.
