New Orleans Mayor LaToya Cantrell Friday posted an altered seal for the city to her social media.

Only saying, "Notice anything different? #CityOfYes @CityOfNOLA," Cantrell shared a version of the seal with the three people pictured with differing skin tones.

It was not immediately clear if the depiction was intended replace the seal or just make a point.

The new seal above is the one on the right.  Here are the posts:

Reaction was mixed with some applauding the mayor, and others ridiculing the move.  Some said it was inclusive, others likened it to taking down the Confederate monuments.
