This shirt is illegal in 52 countries

As I walked into a grocery store yesterday I saw someone wearing a shirt that had a cross on it and said, "This shirt is illegal in 52 countries."

I'm wondering what the actual number is. In what countries would wearing a shirt with a cross on it get you into hot water with the law. I have no doubt it's a number far lower than 52.

I would imagine that North Korea would not tolerate such a thing. Saudi Arabia seems a likely candidate as well.

In Iran Christianity is not banned, but promoting it to Muslims is. So the shirt would be in a kind of gray area. It could very well get you into legal trouble there.

Others?
