Major Swiss insurance company Zurich Insurance removed the Z logo on social media. The firm believes it could be “misinterpreted”. The letter Z is used in Russia in support of Russian aggression, reports Reuters.

“We are temporarily phasing out the use of the letter Z on social media where it appears in isolation and may be misinterpreted / Zurich Insurance is monitoring the situation and intends to take further action if necessary,” the company said in a statement.
One of the company’s logos is a blue letter Z on a white background. Now social networks use the logo with the name of the company Zurich.
Zurich Insurance earlier in March refused to serve new customers in Russia. The company does not intend to resume business in the Russian Federation.
