Germany has now been disciplined for fans’ behavior at all three Euro 2012 group-stage matches, and paid fines totaling $50,000.
UEFA says fans were guilty of “improper conduct” at the match against Denmark on June 17.
Monitors from the Europe-wide FARE fans’ group identified the neo-Nazi symbol after being appointed to help find offensive flags, chants and behavior in Euro 2012 stadiums.
UEFA previously said Germany fans in the Arena Lviv in Ukraine also sang “inappropriate” chants and set off fireworks.
German fans also threw paper missiles at Portugal and Netherlands players at earlier matches.
