Carl Jacobsen adopted a swastika as the logo for "Ny Carlsberg" ("New Carlsberg") beer—a reference to the purity of its ingredients. After 1906 came the swastika within the star. By 1940, however, the rise of Nazi Germany and its perverted interpretation of "purity" had led Carlsberg to abandon the swastika permanently—and the subsequent German occupation pretty much assured that it would not be re-adopted.
