KINGSTON, Jamaica - The German firm that created an advertisement showing the Jamaican flag being burnt and stomped on has apologised to the Jamaican Government and will be pulling the commercial.
A highly placed Government official told the Observer a short while ago that Saturn sent a letter of apology to Jamaica's embassy in Berlin, saying also that it is pulling the advertisement which has created controversy.
Foreign Minister A J Nicholson had told the company that while Jamaica was convinced that the ad was well-intentioned, the fact that one of the island's national symbols was being disrespected required that Saturn repair the unfortunate breach.
