Anti-immigrant Northern League redesigns its logo (ANSA) - Milan, March 31 - The regionalist, anti-immigrant Northern League party has redesigned its logo ahead of European Parliament elections to be held May 25, party sources made known Monday.

The new symbol will have the slogans "Basta euro" (Enough of the euro) and the word "Autonomie" (Autonomies), party secretary Matteo Salvini said.

The new, improved League logo will also include the initial "F" for Die Freiheitlichen (The Libertarians), a right-wing populist and separatist party active in the German-speaking Italian province of South Tyrol, and it will no longer include the name of the current party secretary.

Salvini last week called on allies across Europe to join the fight against "mass immigration" in the lead-up to the EP elections.
