soccer ball buttons?

Hi--Does anyone know whether or not soccer balls on sweater buttons would be offensive to the Afghans? Thanks.

Soccer ball buttons are OK. Flower buttons are OK. We need to avoid depicting faces, national symbols (such as flags and eagles), religious symbols such as crosses (even a Red Cross), symbols that can be political (the peace sign). No skull and crossbones! Maybe there are a few other items for this list, but this is what is top of my head now. It's rare that we get garments or blankets with these things, but we inspect everything carefully. Oh, and we must not use that camouflage yarn -- no war stuff to kids living in a war zone.

I don't think this should limit the creativity much. Colors galore!
