Default T Shirt with Turkey Country Flag

We will be visiting Turkey, and I was asked to purchase a T Shirt with the Turkish flag on it.

When I mentioned it to someone that I will be looking for this, they said it was not wise to wear that kind of T shirt in the US or Canada or elsewhere.

Does anyone have any thoughts on this.

We just visited Turkey recently. The people were very polite and courteous. We had a greatime. Our guide told us to stay away from the politics. The tee shirt----wear another. Don't attract attention with that t-shirt or one bearing the US flag. This is not the day and time to attract attention when you are overseas and a tourist.

Thanks for reply.

I did not buy the T shirt for the person that wanted it. I also did not think it was proper to wear it.

Egypt was great. Very interesting.

P.S.

I meant Turkey, not Egypt.

I am a tad confused. I can understand not wearing something with US flag in certain countries, but why would it be a problem to wear one with a Turkish flag in the US? Yes, some people get their politics mixed up in day to day life, but come on.

I personally would have no problem wearing a t-shirt with the flag of Turkey on it.

The problem is that some ignorant and narrow minded U.S. citizens may think it is a Terrorist country.

This is the flag of Turkey.



Take care,

First of all Turkey is an American ally country.
As being a Turk we would happy seeing our American friends having a Turkey flag t-shirt.

You can find this shirt at the Grand Bazaar or in touristy markets of Kusadasi and Ephesus.

Here is a picture of mine with a Turkey Flag T-Shirt :
