Zeman's assistants mixed up the two flags, putting up a UN flag instead of a NATO flag when the Czech President had a meeting with NATO Chief Jens Stoltenberg.

"This occurred due to a staffer's mistake. An internal investigation will be conducted, so this doesn't happen again," the press secretary of the Czech President said about the incident.
The secretary also tried to downplay the amusing incident, stating that nobody even noticed the wrong flag and that it didn't affect negotiations between the Czech President and the NATO Chief in any way.
What's next? Someone will put a NATO flag instead of an EU flag. They're both blue, eh.
Zeman met with Stoltenberg to discuss the possibility of the Czech Republic taking part in a military operation against ISIL.
