In Germany, there is a ban on PKK [Kurdistan Workers' Party] symbols that, as of March 2017, is officially extended the YPG [People's Protection Units] and YPJ [Women's Protection Units] flags and symbols. Certain German states will prosecute German citizens for posting YPJ-YPG symbols on social media, or bringing their flags to protests.
How does Germany justify this? Do they accept Anakara's line that the YPG are terrorists? (Or it because of shared PKK-YPG symbols (e.g. the red star) and/or the high similarity of the YPG/YPJ flags matching that of PKK's own armed wings, namely the HPG (People's Defence Forces) and YJA-STAR (Free Women's Units)? See flag comparison below.)
