  • I'd feel you'd done your homework. :)
  • I already know that.
  • Well, unfortunately that's not what people think about when they hear the word Swastika. That Hindu and Native American symbol has been trumped. Or something.
  • A symbol or banner is just a label. It only has the meaning that people attach to it. By the way, the Nazi swastika is also a mirror image of Buddhism symbol.
  • Old news. Except Hitler got his swastika backwards. Kinda appropriate.
  • I've heard it before - it's nothing new...

      Oops, spilled motor oil on your coat. Sucks for you huh?
  • The swastika revolves to the right. The sauwastika chosen by Hitler revolves to the left. https://handwiki.org/wiki/Sauwastika
  • Like the Confederate flag, it has become a symbol of hate. [] Few people know why Hitler designed the swastika the way he did. As mentioned, the world symbolizes it as "hate". But the truth is, Hitler designed the flag to intimidate the Soviets - he wanted something that instilled fear in them down to their inner soul. Since the western Allies sided with the Soviet Union, they have exploited it as a hate symbol.
  • The swastika is found in many buildings as a decorative element particularly until the early 20th century. However, a San Diego naval base had four adjacent L-shaped buildings added in the 1960s, arranged to form a swastika when viewed from above. The approval of the design was said to have been an oversight. https://www.google.com/maps/place/Naval+Amphibious+Base+Coronado/@32.6761766,-117.1582702,485m/data=!3m1!1e3!4m5!3m4!1s0x80d9532810e696df:0x8377877a0e4f0033!8m2!3d32.6717284!4d-117.1653585
  • that may be so, but the symbol has been coopted by the Nazis and it will be seen as evil for the rest of human history.
  • Yeah yeah yeah, a lot of people watched the Da Vinci Code... (yawn)
  • I knew that bit of information many years ago
