Hungary and Romania are at diplomatic odds over flying the flag of a particular Hungarian ethnic group, the Szeklers, who live in Romania.  They have been forbidden to fly their flag in Romania and have requested a degree of autonomy which has also been denied.  As a show of support, Hungary has been flying the Szekler flags over government buildings, much to the dismay of the Romanian government.
