Boy London label has been asked changes its logo because it looks like NAZI eagle symbol Angry shoppers have demanded people boycott a fashion brand, claiming its logo bears a striking resemblance to the Nazi eagle insignia which became the national symbol of Adolf Hitler's Third Reich.
A list celebrities including singers Rhianna and Jessie J and model Cara Delevingne, have been spotted wearing the UK based Boy London brand in the past. A spokesman said: 'The brand is in no way connected to Nazism or the idea of anyone being discriminated against for their creed, colour or religious beliefs.' He explained that coach outlet stores in missouri the logo 'was inspired by the eagle of the Roman Empire as a sign of decadence and strength. Its aim is to empower people rather than oppress'. Boy London was founded by Israel based businessman John Krivine in the 1970s and his original boutique in Chelsea, London, sold outrageous items including t shirts with dried animal blood and jewellery made from hypodermic syringes, which were modelled by the original punks. Mr Krivine, who sold the punk coach outlet mebane nc inspired company in 1984, said: 'I don't know what kind of eagle it was Roman Legion, American Indian, Continental Congress, Third Reich it looked cool.' Nazi imagery had been a feature of the late 70s punk's rebellion and Mr Krivine's competitor, Jewish punk entrepreneur Malcolm McLaren, sold swastika T shirts to trade on the coach outlet handbags philippines symbol's shock value. In 2007, high street chain Zara was forced to withdraw stocks of handbags because they were emblazoned with swastikas. Zara said the bag came from an external supplier and the symbol had not been visible when it was selected. AN HISTORIC SYMBOL DERIVED FROM THE HOLY ROMAN EMPERORS The Nazi Party emblem was inspired by an historic symbol used in Germany, the Reichsadler. The Reichsadler was derived from the Roman eagle standard used by the Holy Roman Emperors. At the time the eagle was the insignia of the Imperial power as distinguished from the Imperial states. The eagle began to appear in the 9th Century on the banner of Charlemagne and his successors. Since then the majestic bird has been used to symbolise the Habsburg Monarchy as well as the Austrian Empire. The Nazi Party emblem from The Admiral Graf Spee is raised from the seabed. The logo became the national symbol in Hitler's Germany in 1935 During the 1848 revolutions in Germany, attempts were made to re implement the Reichsadler as a symbole of unity. In 1871 a single headed eagle became the insignia of Otto von Bismarck's Lesser German solution, which sought to unify the northern German states, leaving out Austria. In contrast the Greater German Solution favoured unifying all German speaking peoples under ones state and was promoted by the Austrian Empire.
After the First World War the Weimar Republic under President Friedrich Ebert assumed a plain version of the Reichsadler, which stayed in use until 1935. It was then that Adolf Hitler introduced coach outlet stores in georgia his own stylised eagle combining the bird with the Nazi swastika to create a new national emblem. Hitler introduced both his own version of the Reichsadler, in which the eagle is looking towards its right shoulder, and another version the Nazi Party's Parteiadler (the Party's eagle), where the eagle looks to its left.
