On 19 September 2015, group Ztohoven (The Ztohoven name is itself a Czech-language pun, and can be read either as Z toho ven (“The way out”), or Sto Hoven (“One hundred shits”). The group translates the name into English as “Out of shit”.) reached new heights (literally) with their latest public protest, scaling the outer walls of the Prague Castle to erect a giant pair of red boxers in place of the Castle flag.
Once on the roof, they lowered the Presidential flag and replaced it with the giant pair of pants. On their website, Ztohoven released a statement, saying: “Today we hung a banner over the castle for a man who is not ashamed of anything.”
The statement also included a short poem that criticised President Zeman for his close ties to China and Russia.
The pants were quickly removed by security after the stunt, and the three men were arrested.
The group then cut the Presidential flag to 1152 pieces and gave them to randomly chosen people from all over the country with bitcoin code to donation.
