RIGHT: Volkswagen logo, DESIGNER: Nicolai Borg, YEAR: 1939.

Nicolai Borg was commissioned by the Nazis to design the VW logo for Volkswagen, is suing the company for allegedly failing to recognise his work since 1950s without succes. Financial compensation is not sought by Borg. However he has asked Volkswagen to make a press statement with him to acknowledge that he was the author of the work.

Volkswagen is denying this. Volkswagen is claiming that the designer is unknown.
