Exactly what I was trying to point out.

The exemption for the seven-inch section of the lower part of the windshield doesn't apply to you, both because your sticker is in the upper part and is way more than seven square inches.

Unfortunately you are guilty under the letter of the law, as inscrutable as it is.

Obviously a more reasonable officer may not have hassled you for that, but I agree with other people that it probably was the German flag which got them riled up. We Americans tend to be a patriotic sort, and given the unfortunate association with German nationalism and a certain World War, I don't think your sticker aroused the warmest of feelings among this particular LEO. Just my 2 cents.
This is getting comical isnít it?
