Le Monde was forced to apologize to its readers for Saturday’s cover photo of its weekly magazine M, after some drew parallels between the photo of French President Emmanuel Macron on a red-and-white background with a black Gothic letter “M” right behind him and the black-and-white image of Nazi Germany’s Adolf Hitler standing in front of the red-and-white flag of the Third Reich with a black swastika.

Chief Editor for Le Monde, Luc Bronner, publicized the respective message, Russian News Agency TASS reported.

“We apologize to all those who were shocked by its graphic design, which obviously does not correspond to the criticism we have addressed,” the journalist wrote.

He added that its designers had drawn inspiration from the works of Russian constructivists.
