At the official ceremony in front of the government of Macedonia, Kurz was welcomed with the flag of Latvia on display - instead of that of Austria, local media in Albanian and Macedonian are reporting.
The reports said the two flags' colors are "similar": "Red, with a white stripe across the middle." But on the Austrian one, the white stripe is "somewhat wider."
