When the far-right party AFD started to agitate people against refugees in the autumn of 2015, many people in our town started to stand up against them. They rallied behind the slogan Weinheim bleibt bunt – Weinheim will stay colourful, meaning that diversity was welcomed. Very soon a symbol was created – that of the colourful dog. The reference is to a German saying when somebody is known all over town that he stands out like a dog of many colours.
