Official circles here are protesting against the misuse of the swastika, official Nazi emblem, found printed on the wrappers of Palestine oranges intended for export to Germany. German authorities are displeased that the German national symbol is being used for advertising purposes.

Oranges marked “Saint Elijah, Jaffa”, were wrapped in paper bearing a picture of the prophet surrounded by swastikas. The wrappers were found to have been used by an Arab exporting firm.
