A car branded with the emblem of the Lebanon-based terror group Hezbollah was spotted on Tuesday parked outside a supermarket in London, the U.K.’s Daily Mail reported.

The emblem was emblazoned over a Syrian flag painted onto the door of the car, which was parked outside an Asda supermarket in Wembley Park.

The sighting came a day after a man walked past Britain’s Houses of Parliament carrying an Islamic State flag and a young girl on his shoulders. Authorities say both incidents are “within the law,” the Daily Mail said.

Police said: “Wearing, carrying or displaying of an emblem or flag, by itself, is not an offence unless; the way in which, or the circumstance in which, the emblem is worn, carried or displayed is such as to cause reasonable suspicion that the person is a supporter or member of a proscribed organization.”

Hezbollah’s military arm is classified as a terrorist group in the U.K., but the organization as a whole is not.
