Just for fun. No political message implied.

Why not put swastika then? Perhaps you don't know, but soviet symbols are banned in many countries. And frankly, using symbols which represent an ideology caused death of few hundred million people across the world "just for fun" looks strange at best.

I guess we had a bias towards the perception of these symbols. Never really thought it could be perceived as harsh as a swastika. I was really surprised to learn that soviet symbols are banned in many countries. You live - you learn.
We have changed the design. Apologies to anyone offended!
