Is Angela Merkel Succeeding the Nazi Regime?

Is Angela Merkel Succeeding the Nazi Regime?

Look at the picture below. Of course, it is a composite photograph.
German Chancellor Angela Merkel visited all victimized countries
and apologized that there was “Nazi” in Germany’s past.

There is another picture. 
The picture below is not a composite but is a real one.  
It was taken on November 2013. 
Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe is bowing in front of the
Rising Sun Flag that the Japanese Navy are waving.

Everyone in the world must no.
Swastika, Hakenkreuz, and Rising Sun Flag were all used by
invading countries in the past, and must not be used right now.
And Japan is still using the Rising Sun flag in its official national event.
