A German reporter asked about the omission during a foreign office press conference in Berlin last Friday. The Deputy Spokesperson responded by saying that Taiwan is not a country that Germany recognizes.
In response, a spokesperson for Taiwan’s foreign ministry, Joanne Ou, said refusing to show Taiwan's flag is unacceptable. She says that the foreign ministry has ordered Taiwan’s representative office in Berlin to communicate with the Federal Foreign Office.
