Falcons prevent Commerzbank from unfurling new logo

16th June 2010, Comments 0 comments

Commerzbank, Germany's second-largest bank, unveiled its new logo on Tuesday but said it was unable to attach it to one of the towers of its headquarters due to peregrine falcons.

The bank managed to display its new logo on one building, but "in order to not disturb five peregrine falcons who are nesting the yellow banner was not unfurled on the western tower of our headquarters and the operation was postponed to a later date," it said in a statement.

Peregrine falcons, a protected species in Germany, have come to nest on their own on the upper floors of the skyscrapers in the city, feeding on its ample supply of pigeons.
