A car boot seller who sparked outrage by displaying a Nazi-era German flag has said he didn’t know the Swastika on it wasn’t still being used by the German armed forces.Anthony Williams was spoken to by police after the large red flag, which displays the Nazi symbol, was put up on his stall at the Bryn y Gog car boot in Wrexham on Sunday.But today Mr Williams, 56, claimed he had not intended to offend anyone. He also denied he had told organisers who asked him to remove it that he had put it up ‘in support of Manchester’ after last week’s terrorist outrage which killed 22 people.He told the Daily Post the flag had been displayed alongside the American Southern states’ Confederate flag at around 6am when he and his friend first arrived.Mr Williams said he had owned the Confederate flag for more than 35 years and that he used it in American civil war enactments, but that the German flag had been brought by his friend.
