An Alberta MP said he was not aware a person was flying an upside down Canadian flag with a swastika on it behind him when he gave a television interview at a protest in Ottawa on the weekend.

Michael Cooper, the Conservative MP for St. Albert-Edmonton, was giving an interview to CBC TV on Saturday afternoon when a person holding the flag walked behind him. A photo of Cooper in proximity to the flag circulated online.

In a written statement Saturday night, Cooper distanced himself from the symbol, condemning it as "evil."
