The Australian Defence Force says it took immediate action after an image emerged of soldiers flying a Nazi swastika flag in Afghanistan in 2007.

The image was obtained by abc.net.au.

According to the national broadcaster, a defence spokesperson said:

"Defence and the ADF reject as abhorrent everything this flag represents. Neither the flag nor its use are in line with Defence values.

"The flag was briefly raised above an Australian Army vehicle in Afghanistan in 2007.

"The commander took immediate action to have the offensive flag taken down.

"It is totally inappropriate for any ADF vehicle or company to have a flag of this nature.

"The personnel involved were immediately cautioned at the time and subsequently received further counselling.

"Additionally, steps were taken to reinforce education and training for all personnel who witnessed the flag."
