Wrong Emblem

BY CHRISTIAN PASCHOUD

Wrong Emblem
The graphic “ In Favor of Reform ” ( JofA , May04, page 15) grabbed my attention. The artist drew a white cross inside a red box. This is the emblem of Switzerland and has nothing to do with the context. I am a Swiss citizen and this representation disturbed me. If the designer meant to represent the emblem of the Red Cross, then the colors should have been reversed.

Thank you for taking the appropriate steps to let readers know of this graphic misrepresentation.
