Virginia School District Apologizes for Logo Resembling Swastika

A Virginia school district superintendent apologized Wednesday for a logo that some thought resembled a swastika.

The logo was intended to represent four hands and arms grasping together, Hanover County Superintendent of Schools Michael Gill said in a statement.

“We are deeply sorry for this mistake and for the emotions that the logo has evoked by its semblance to a swastika and, by extension, to the atrocities that were committed under its banner,” Gill wrote.

The logo was designed by a teacher and had been used in a professional learning conference.
