OK to remove red sticker and film from Waveshare E-ink panel?

Silly question maybe, Is it safe or recommended to remove the red sticker and attached film from the Waveshare E-ink display panel? Is it protective only or possible integral to panel operation?

It is just a plastic screen protector, safe to remove.

I removed the flag, but left the clear sticker, call it a screen protector!
