Kelowna’s iconic Spirit of Sail sculpture has been tagged with graffiti, with black spray-painted silhouettes of crosses marring the popular attraction.

Installed in 1978 just in front of nearby Okanagan Lake, countless photos have been snapped of the large fiberglass piece of art, which is commonly called the Sails.

Silhouettes of crosses were also spray-painted in front of the sculpture as well.

The City of Kelowna says it has partnered with Crime Stoppers and is offering a $500 reward for tips from the public that lead to an arrest for any graffiti vandalism.
