Madonna and Iceland's Hatari band displayed Palestinian flags during the Eurovision 2019 finals, which prompted discontent of the organizers in Tel-Aviv.

Two dancers stood joining hands with Israeli and Palestinian flags being on their backs during Madonna's performance.

Iceland's band which ended 26th in the final showed at least two scarves showing Palestinian flags when the results were announced. Later on, they posted a video showing how the organizers took the banned flags away.

The band may face punishment for their actions, and EBU is expected to announce the decision after the contest.
