Russian football club removes “Nazi logo” from its websitePosted by in Logo Design News
Lokomotiv Moscow, a top Russian football club based in Moscow, was alleged to have featured a “Nazi logo” on advertising materials and publicity photos. According to some bloggers, it consisted of a backdrop of a steam engine used by the Nazis; actually a German “DR-Baureihe 03” which was manufactured in 1937. Within a few hours, the locomotive was removed from the photos on the club’s website.
It’s interesting here to note that the club was established by railwaymen in 1922 and is currently sponsored by Russian Railways.
