ST. CHARLES, Ill. (AP) - A vendor at a suburban Chicago flea market has removed a Nazi flag that had been for sale after complaints.

The (Arlington Heights) Daily Herald reports (http://bit.ly/29qKoDR ) that a picture of the display at the Kane County Flea Market in St. Charles was shared hundreds of times on social media Sunday and generated criticism.

Ben Robinson is a member of the family that owns the flea market. He says the vendor was “more than happy to take it down.”

Robinson says the man has been a vendor for about 30 years and typically sells furniture and household items.

Robinson says the vendor was not making a political statement and did not intend to cause offense.

He says the flag is a legitimate collectible among those interested in military items.
