The council’s head gardener was dispatched to the scene on Wednesday to rearrange the flowers in a more appropriate manner.
“We got reactions at lunchtime yesterday and immediately went out and changed it,” council spokesman Bo Davidsson told Sveriges Radio.
“People thought it looked like a swastika but I didn’t really think it did. It was more like a wheel with twisted arms,” he added.
The head gardener said he had been inspired by a similar traffic roundabout in Helsingborg. But the pattern looked somewhat different when scaled down to fit the smaller Aneby roundabout.
