Carrot graffities?

Over the past few weeks I have seen many graffitis of carrots all over walls, work containers, floors etc. Does any one know what they stand for or what the meaning of them is?
I m talking city of Zurich, everywhere. On my 10 min bike ride to work I pass at least 2 in Wiedikon. Oerlikon I saw further ones etc

Re: Carrot graffities?

I was wondering the same thing! They are all over Wiedikon! My mom was asking about them when she visited. I asked a Swiss friend, and he didn't know anything about it either.

Re: Carrot graffities?

There was a report in the Neue Zürcher Zeitung. It seems that nobody knows who the 'artist' is, there are a couple of theories, possibly someone from Aargau (the carrot Kanton) or a vegetarian or vegan.
The carrot is the most popular vegetable in Switzerland.
