VW: logo riot! Is there a swastika hidden here?

Wolfsburg. bad accusations against vw! For decades, the group has been trying to put their Nazi past behind them.

But now a video has surfaced on social media that all efforts to vw could cancel.

VW Clip Fact Check

It’s not the first video of its kind, clips showing the VW logo looking like a swastika when rotated quickly go viral over and over again.


The heads of VW (1948 – 2022):

  • Herbert Diess (since 2018)
  • Matthias Muller (2015 – 2018)
  • Martin Winterkorn (2007 – 2015)
  • Bernd Pischetsrieder (2002 – 2006)
  • Fernando Piech (1993 – 2002)
  • Carl Hahn (1982 – 1992)
  • Toni Schmucker (1975 – 1981)
  • Rodolfo Leiding (1971 – 1975)
  • Kurt Lotz (1968-1971)
  • Henry Nordhoff (1948 – 1968)


But what is behind this optical illusion? The German Press Agency has submitted the video to a fact check, and the results are more than clear.

VW: THAT shows self-experiment

To do this, they analyzed the twelve-second clip very precisely using the “Watchframebyframe” tool. Accordingly, it was clearly visible there that a swastika is superimposed on the group’s logo. It is said that both signs can be seen at the same time for a short time.

A check of the other fake videos of this type also shows that this effect does not exist and that the clips are manipulated. Some people did a self-experiment and rotated the logo.

But no matter how fast, no swastika is recognizable. Also, even at high RPM, you can see the space between the “V” and “W” disappearing in the swastika video.

Hitler supported the founding of VW

Volkswagen keeps its Nazi past transparent. In 1937, three officials, including the National Socialist German Labor Front, founded Volkswagen. They received significant support from Adolf Hitler.
