Hi Toromis and welcome to the Zoo
This is a barred spiral galaxy.
See the full color image (image rotated)
The "arrow" is made up of active star forming areas in the galaxy and they show up in the B/W image. The spiral arms are too faint to be seen in the B/W image.
Happy hunting !
That makes sense. Thank you for your help.
