Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I had to image-search for both... but indeed I find the equation of the two strange, especially because of the water.

Not so in Hungary (though that may have changed since -- I rarely see them on young people in the summer, flip-flops spread here too).
