Egyptians got mad because they thought the government was making "gay" money

The Egyptian government has been forced to clarify that they do not intend to include an LGBTQ-positive message in the country’s 20-pound note.

Some citizens got upset when the Central Bank of Egypt debuted the country’s new polymer banknotes online, claiming a watermark is secretly a gay pride flag superimposed over a mosque.

The wild rumor started after the government unveiled the new notes. The new design includes an image of the newly-built Al-Fattah Al-Aleem mosque and the watermark is over top of the drawing.

The bank stressed that the designs were “preliminary” and that the “rainbow” is a security feature that only shows up when held a certain way in the light. It is a common feature on currency and credit cards to deter counterfeiting and theft.

1. Be curious to know the truth of this story ...

Cause it kinda seems like someone (or small group) at the Central Bank *almost* pulled off something awesome.

But I'm not quite sure.
