Selling soccer t-shirts

Q:

1. I want to sell T-shirts with different country flags on them for the upcoming Soccer World Cup. Some of these countries are not majority Muslim countries (e.g. Portugal, Spain, France etc). Will it be permissible to sell these t shirts?

2. What is the ruling on advertising products with videos of people using them? Sometimes products need a video demonstration, or a photo to show how to properly use them. What is a permissible way to do this?

A:

1. If they have no religious connotations like crosses etc. then it is permissible.

2. Selling the product is permissible. Avoid the video.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
