AlfaRomeologo

For nogle år siden lagde en tyrkisk advokat sag an mod fodboldklubben Inter Milan, der lejlighedsvis erstattede sit normale logo med et rødt kors på hvid baggrund, det såkaldte Milan-flag, kendt fra Korstogene. Samme flag er i øvrigt en del af AC Milans officielle logo. Herunder det officielle logo for Alfa Romeo…

“…. the owners of Alfa Romeo… wanted a logo that was associated with the city of Milan, so they used symbols that Milan had used since the Crusades. The red cross is typical Christian symbol of medieval heraldry and used extensively throughout the crusades. …

The man in the serpents mouth is a bit more controversial. It’s a symbol called a biscione, and the man in the image is alternatively described as a child (the modern interpretation) or a Saracen or Moor (aka: a Muslim). So the whole serpent motif is all about the Christians Crusaders’ defeat of the infidels.” (Adsavvy.org)
