Neighbors mistake NZ All Blacks flag for ISIS banner

Panic in Fidenza

(ANSA) - Rome, November 20 - A rugby fan who hung a New Zealand All Blacks banner outside his home caused a panic when neighbors mistook it for an Islamic State (ISIS) flag, sources said Friday. Police and Carabinieri in the town of Fidenza near Parma received dozens of calls Thursday from panicked residents at the sight of the black flag crossed by a silver fern. The rugby lover had wanted to honor former All Blacks winger and rugby great Jonah Lomu, who died Wednesday.
