(CNN) — The United States National Archives has apologized and removed an altered photo of the 2017 Women’s March from a display.

They said in a tweet, “We made a mistake.” The Archives censored signs referencing women’s anatomy and President Donald Trump’s name.

According to the Washington Post, the photo taken a day after Pres. Trump’s inauguration, had Trump’s name blurred from signs.

The National Archives said the photo was not an archival record, but one licensed as a promotional graphic.

The agency says it will replace the image with an unaltered one as soon as possible.
