Navy to alter swastika-shaped barracks after aerial photos highlight snafu informs the Associated Press. Originally a Hindu symbol, the Swastika gained much popularity after it became to be associated with evil, as the Nazis adopted it as their symbol.

According to the report, The Navy will spend as much as $600,000 to renovate this Swastika-shaped 40-year-old barracks complex.

"The Navy said officials noted the buildings' shape after the groundbreaking in 1967 but decided against changing it at the time because it wasn't obvious from the ground. Aerial photos made available on such services as Windows Live and Google Earth in recent years have since revealed the buildings' shape to a wide audience.

The Navy approved the money to change the walkways, landscaping and rooftop solar panels of the four L-shaped barracks, used by members of the Naval Construction Force at the Navy's amphibious base at Coronado, near San Diego."
