Giant swastika found in Brazil swimming pool

Brazilian police release photograph of Nazi symbol but say owner will not be prosecuted


A giant swastika has been discovered emblazoned on the floor of a swimming pool in Brazil.

Police discovered it by chance as they were flying overhead in a helicopter during an anti-kidnapping operation.

They later investigated and found the Nazi symbol had been there for 13 years.

Because it is on private land they are not able to file any charges against the owner of the house where the pool sits in the garden.

The owner told police he was not promoting Nazi views and has not been publicly identified.

The swastika was found in the town of Pomerode in the state of Santa Catarina in southern Brazil.

Santa Catarina has a large population of Germans and Austrians dating back to the 19th Century.

In Pomerode around 90 per cent of the 25,000 population
