Summary: President Moncef Marzouki said during the ceremony that "the flag is the symbol of the country … the blood of martyrs … and the Arab-Islamic identity." He called for the man responsible for the flag desecration - whose picture has been splashed under newspaper headlines and across social networking sites - to turn himself in. No charges, Tunisia Live notes, have yet been filed against the man responsible for the incident.
