ISIS plants its flag on…Shutterstock!

Shutterstock, a worldwide high quality photos database usually used by advertising and design agencies in return of a monthly subscription fee, has just published a surprising new entry.

In fact, browsing through different countries’ flags, you may find yourself landing on non other than the flag of the Islamic State (also known as ISIS or Da3esh “داعش”).

What is also interesting is the list of keywords accompanying this entry and thus linking the photo to anyone who searches for words such as Islam, Sunni and Arab.

Yes, this may be an innocent contribution to a library which may be used in so many different ways, however, this also represents how this terrorist organization is now invading all platforms and thus carving itself as an inescapable part of our lives, history and global image.

This pushes us to wonder about what’s coming next? An official ISIS flag on the Whatsapp Emoji library?

    Shutterstock is powered by users submissions. Unless you trace the user who uploaded this belongs to ISIS this could have been uploaded by anyone who though he’s make some money out of this as it is trending.
    About including this flag to emojis, this would be too much.

      Definitely agreed Hisham. This could be anyone who traced the flag. Unfortunately the sad part is the linking of such a flag with keywords relating to our daily lives.

      Thats true, but to be able to be a part of the shutterstock community and be approved after a long process with the company for your high end images you gotta stop to question this… They hand pick who is able to post on their website… so its either a very weak point on their part or a smart approach on the user uploading it’s part.

    ISIS flags should be burned everywhere and its members should be traced and killed by all people who care about making a better world and future.
