For 2 illustrations for the UK leaving Europe/Brexit -

Image Unsuitable as Stock Photo / Too Offensive / Improper for General Viewing

Offensive flags! The fun of it all.

Someone's probably touchy about "insulting a flag".  Burning American ones is a popular pastime in some parts of the world. Can we see the imgages somewhere?

These guys sometimes work in mysterious ways...

Clearly my weirdest rejection was this one (submitted to bigstock): http://www.istockphoto.com/dk/photo/christmas-card-gnomes-in-front-of-their-cosy-home-gm523645455-51340414?st=b15a71f

I was asked for a property release!!!
I did ask the "owners" VERY politely, but I was met with a wall of silence  ;D

There is a light leak on a UK flag so I guess they thought it was flames! Accepted everywhere else. No sleep lost.

jazz42, you actually need a property release for that image. bigstock was right to reject it without one

Yes, I found out after asking them. Its handcraft and therefore considered a form of art from which you need the permission of the artist (I did the background/home). I just thought is was rather hilarious at first and suspected that it was some form of auto-rejection as I had the word "home" in the title and as keyword.
