A banner featuring a swastika laid over a Star of David was flown over New York’s Coney Island and Long Island beaches on Saturday by a group seeking to reclaim the image as one of peace rather than meanings associated with Nazi Germany.

The banner fly was part of the International Raelian Movement’s “International Swastika Rehabilitation Week,” which ran from July 5 to July 12, according to

"The swastika symbol is one of the oldest symbols on the Earth and can be found in all religions and traditions, on all continents!" the site says. 

Yet the banner riled some residents of the targeted areas, according to 1010 WINS in New York.
“How they got clearance to fly this plane. Was there any kind of pre-screening, pre-clearance of what was going to be flown over,” said New York City Councilman Mark Treyger, who represents Coney Island.
Treyger said no matter their intentions, the swastika is an offensive symbol.
“I will not accept their twisted logic. And I am also going to speak out against sending chilling messages of fear and intimidation to residents,” he said.
