I was Wondering

I was watching the news earlier and i was watching an article about the BA strike action and i noticed the union emblem.

Why is the BASSA union, which is part of the Unite union, using as it's emblem a classic WWII picture from the Battle of IWO JIMA?

See Below;
Spot the difference?

Notice the difference?
Not much if you ask me.

Is it right that a union is recreating a picture where soldiers lost their lives?

Is the union saying that they will put their lives on the line for their members?

In my opinion it is an insult to the people who fought in the Battle of Iwo Jima that a union would recreate this picture.
