The case of Nissim Navaro, among many others, is an example of the Jewish behavior. After the Monroe treaty, some minorities living in Izmir took down the Turkish flag at the entrance of the Splendid Hotel and pulled up a Greek flag in its place. A Turkish Jew named Nissim Navaro took down the Greek flag.

Another example is the inauguration of the Sirkeci synagogue. The Sirkeci synagogue was inaugurated during the occupation of Istanbul. At the opening ceremony, a Turkish flag was hanging at the entrance of the synagogue.
