Maybe they thought heavy metal dots* are incompatible with the idea of Gemütlichkeit?

I can somehow understand the uniforms explained by the WWII reenactment, having sat at restaurants dressed as an orc or elf myself numerous times. But the flags are too much. They certainly were NOT part of the reenactment earlier, but someone still considered that kind of decoration appropriate. But maybe it's just my German upbringing that taught me that the display of swastikas is a very delicate matter, and these people don't know any better. After all, we Germans frequently show a similar lack of sensitiveness when it comes to black facing.

Nice juxtaposition of flags.
