Iceland’s Eurovision Punk Trio May Be Punished Over Displaying Palestinian Flags

Pop icon Madonna, who performed in the Eurovision final as one of the event’s guest stars, also came under fire after two of her dancers were seen draped in Israel and Palestinian flags.

Organisers of the 64th Eurovision Song Contest have warned that Iceland’s participants may face punishment for “briefly” displaying Palestinian flags during the live broadcast of the event’s grand final on 18 May.

“The small Palestinian banners” were held up by members of Hatari, a leather-clad bondage punk trio, as their public vote was being announced. The group came in tenth position.


“The Eurovision Song Contest is a non-political event and this directly contradicts the Contest rules. The banners were quickly removed and the consequences of this action will be discussed by the Reference Group (the Contest’s executive board) after the Contest”, organisers said in a statement.
