  5. 5.

Because it is a symbol of German patriotism. the the same patriotism that Hitler used to campaign with, and the same patriotism brought shame to the spirit of Germans with the holocaust. To This day still it brings nothing to be proud of to the Germans; and though it is becoming less and less of an issue, the Nazi political party still campaigns with the idea of German patriotism. </li></ul><ul><li>If you are not actively serving it is suggested to just not wear military clothing </li></ul>

  7. 7.
