Officials are concerned that it might be seen as ‘antagonistic’ or ‘Imperialistic’.
But wait. It’s not even the Russians saying this. It’s their own British Babies. Sorry, “Bobbies”.

Up to 10,000 England fans are expected to travel to Russia next month, along with a small force of UK police to help keep them safe.
The head of football policing Deputy Chief Constable Mark Roberts argued the St George’s Crosses were seen as the top trophies for rival fans and ultras, as well as appearing to link them to the history of the British Empire.
“I think people need to be really careful with flags. It can come across as almost imperialistic… and can cause antagonism,” he told The Times.
He told fans to remember Russia’s heavy losses in the Second World War, and not to act provocatively in cities with a history of trauma such as Volgograd, formerly known as Stalingrad.
