Those triangle shapes are easy to read from a distance and have been used for a very long time by many, including the Nazis...
They were pretty smart guys, so they would use something like that too it just freaks some out now when that symbol is seen .
just like the "swastika" freaks people out now, especially Jews. even when it is not the reversed and stood on corner version that was used as Nazi
one of the most amusing things i have seen was on a class trip to the many different religious buildings we had in the area. on that trip we went to
an orthodox synagogue, an Greek orthodox cathedral, a Muslim mosque and conservative synagogue that actually shared a parking lot between them, and a
Buddhist temple (and a few others) that were in the area. now my school had a very high population of Jews in it. when we walked into the Buddhist
temple quite a few of my fellow students started to majorly freak out. "oh my god they HATE US", "they must want to kill us all", "we need to
call the police about all this HATRED against the Jews". there were "swastikas" EVERYWHERE, as border designs on just about every shrine and
decorations on just about every surface. i honestly thought some would have a coronary or something. the sheer panic
that was radiating from
these classmates was just completely insane. at about that point a very nice monk came over and worked with the teachers to calm them down, seriously
they were hysterical. after getting them calmed down so that people he then explained what the symbol meant to him.
lets face it ALL of the "Nazi" symbols
and even their salute were borrowed from other sources. you might even say that the Nazis corrupted or
contaminated these symbols by their use of them. so to see any Nazi
symbol anywhere is not necessarily anything to do with the Nazis. even the
award the Iron Cross
itself was an award in Germany before
the Nazi party even existed. in fact Hitler himself won an Iron Cross,
in 1914, and an Iron Cross, first class
in 1918, both during world war one.
