Japanese club disciplined over banner resembling Nazi symbol

The J-League fined first division side Gamba Osaka $17,500 on Thursday after a group of supporters displayed a banner with a logo resembling a Nazi symbol during a match last month.

The banner, which resembled a symbol derived from the SS of Nazi Germany, was displayed at the team's April 16 match away to crosstown rivals Cerezo Osaka.

After the incident, Gamba said that members of the group have been banned from games indefinitely.


The logo was simply a double "s", which could stand for many things.  How about socialism and solidarity? In Nazi use it stood for Schutzstaffel, protection staff.
