STOCKHOLM (QHA) -

The Crimean Tatar flag has been put on the prohibited list of a music festival Eurovision-2016.

According to the data on a website of a concert hall Stockholm Globe Arena, the Crimean Tatar flag does not belong to the state flags and thus is banned at the festival.

The visitors are allowed to bring only the flags of the participating countries, the EU flag or other UN member-countries.

Any local, regional or provincial flags are banned.

The Crimean Tatar flag has been put on a prohibited list along with the flags of Kosovo, Palestine, Northern Cyprus, Transnistria, as well as a flag of the so-called "DPR" and the terrorist group "Islamic State."

As QHA reported earlier, a singer Jamala won the National selection for the "Eurovision-2016" with her song "1944." Jamala is to perform in the second semifinal in Stockholm on May 12, with a song number 15.
