Huge Swastika Spotted At Bottom Of Brazilian Swimming Pool

Authorities did Nazi this coming.

Brazilian Civil Police were flying a helicopter over the municipality of Pomerode in Saint Caterina last week when they spotted a huge swastika apparently painted on the bottom of a swimming pool, CNN reports.

Police — who were flying a helicopter as part of an unrelated kidnapping investigation — launched a subsequent investigation that revealed the swastika had been on the bottom of the pool for about 13 years.

Since the pool is on private land, no charges will be filed, according to NBC. Local law enforcement says that the homeowner is not promoting Nazism.

Although Brazil supported the Allied troops during World War II, the country nonetheless had significant ties with Nazi Germany, according to the BBC. The population of Pomerode is about 80% of German descent.
