Coca-Cola Plans Ramadan Cans

The Turkish division of Coca-Cola has just completed a design agreement for a new line of Coke cans that will mark the Muslim holiday of Ramadan. Digital Arts Online reports the cans will feature the Islamic symbol of the crescent moon and star. They will be distributed throughout parts of the Middle East, North Africa and as far east as Indonesia.

News of the Islamic-friendly Coke cans has prompted some critics to ask whether Coca-Cola would change its designs for Christmas from polar bears and penguins to include the Christian cross. Or to include the Star of David for those who celebrate Hanukkah.

Coca-Cola has not yet responded to FOX News about the story.
