TAIPEI, Taiwan — A video released by Ministry of Nation Defense showing President

Tsai wearing a military uniform without a national flag patch has set tongues wagging — many in fury.

The missing embroidery seemed particularly strange considering that it was present on the uniforms of Defense Minister Feng Shih-kuan and National Security Council Secretary-General Yen Teh-fa, both of whom appear with Tsai in the clip.

Making the contrast even more conspicuous was the absence of the flag from the uniform of Tsai’s secretary-general, Joseph Wu.

Speculation intensified after a post about the uniforms was made to a military news Facebook page frequented by military, former military and deep-blue users.
