Ukrainian flag confused with Maldivian flag at Zelensky's UN talks

Zelensky posted a photo from the event on Twitter on 22 September, but it took two days for the flags to be noticed.

In the published picture, behind Shahid’s back there is an image of the official emblem of the United Nations, and behind the Ukrainian president there is a flag of the Maldives.

There were also small flags placed on tables next to the negotiators. Zelensky had a UN flag next to him, while Shahid had a Maldivian flag.
