Professor Seo Kyung-deok of Sungshin Women's University, who has been conducting a campaign to eradicate the Rising Sun Flag around the world, found a scene of him cheering for the Rising Sun Flag at the Qatar World Cup, and immediately informed him. On the 21st, he requested internet users in Japan and overseas to provide information.

Professor Seo said, "If you see the Rising Sun flag cheering at the Qatar World Cup site or on TV, please inform us immediately," he said. "We plan to let the world know about the problem."

Professor Seo plans to spread the word that the rising sun flag is a "war criminal flag" which means the same as Nazi Germany's Hakenkreuz, if cheering with the rising sun flag appears.

Prior to this, the Rising Sun flag cheering photo on the outer wall of a famous shopping mall in Doha, Qatar was removed due to protests by local Koreans and netizens.

At the time of the World Cup in Russia, a photo of the Japanese side cheering with the rising sun flag was posted on FIFA's official Instagram, causing controversy. During the second match of the Group H primary league between Japan and Senegal, the scene of the Japanese cheering squad waving the rising sun flag was televised around the world, causing a great deal of controversy.
