PITTSBURGH — A uniquely Pittsburgh symbol of solidarity and strength is making its way around the internet in the aftermath of Saturday’s deadly attack at a Pittsburgh synagogue.

The image is a revamped Pittsburgh Steelers logo, with the Star of David substituting for the team’s yellow star-like design. It’s paired with the phrase “Stronger than Hate.”

Steelers spokesman Burt Lauten tweeted that a moment of silence will be observed before the game.

“Our hearts our heavy, but we must stand against anti-semitism and hate crimes of any nature and come together to preserve our values and our community,” Steelers President Art Rooney II said in a statement.

The same observance was made Saturday night before Game 4 of the World Series in Los Angeles and before the NHL’s Toronto Maple Leafs vs. Winnipeg Jets game in Toronto.

On social media, Pittsburgh sports teams and their players stood with those mourning in their city.
