CWN Editor's Note: Organizers of the 2024 Olympic Games in Paris are taking criticism for promotional posters that eliminate the cross from a depiction of the Hotel des Invalides.

The cross on the steeple atop the dome of building is a familiar landmark in Paris, and critics suggest that the illustrator, Ugo Gattoni, deliberately eliminated a Christian symbol. “They are willing to deny France to the point of distorting reality to erase its history,” charged Francois-Xavier Bellamy, a member of the European Parliament.
