A court says a 70-year-old woman in eastern Germany has dropped an appeal against her conviction for posting a photo on Facebook of eggs she'd decorated with the Nazi swastika and other runes, wishing people "Happy Easter."

The Dresden administrative court said Thursday that Margit H. withdrew the appeal of her conviction for displaying banned symbols and agreed to pay a 750-euro ($820) fine.
H., whose last name wasn't given in line with privacy laws, posted the picture over Easter 2016 of the basket of 10 eggs decorated with the Nazi German flag, and with the SS symbol and other runes.
The woman had tried to argue that she didn't know what the symbols were, that she was protected by freedom of speech, and that it was a joke.
