OK, I must admit I got a giggle out of that.

You have always been kind to me.

Actually, you gave me my first cookie years ago!

I reply without reading all the thread, as usual.. :

In a nutshell; the Nazi swastika was borrowed from ancient Hindu texts, where a clockwise pointed swastika indicated evil and destruction, much like the hindu goddess (forgot her name) at CERN. But they mean the same thing, chaos and destruction. Nuff said.
The anticlockwise swastika turning to the left, was thought to be the opposite, showng all the virtues and morals of a good being.A sort of Hindu Yin/Yang.....
I have seen some dyslexic skinheads put the 'good' swastika on a wall and i thought, fools, you have just blessed this house, when you thought you were cursing it, haha

All the most ancient (human) text were written with straight lines, as this was easier to scrape into a stone tablet, that is why latin has mainly straight lines, it is much more difficult to scrape a curve into stone....the only notable exceptions being of course the egyptians, AND the ancient celts of northern europe, they did everything with spirals because they were more in contact with nature, as all fields are indeed spiral in their very nature....

Fascinating, yes, on topic, mmm who knows?

I see that Bigburgh, Finspiracy and the OP seem to have nailed it, so i'm out of here.

I know it's conventional to say that Hitler reversed the symbol, but I'm going to query that assumption. It's well-known that Kipling got the symbol from Indian culture and used to plant it on his book covers before Hitler came along. Yet the symbol on his book-covers has exactly the same orientation as the version which your source is assigning to Hitler. I know that because I've got one in front of me (a school prize which my father received in 1932).

The swastika had apparently been present in several human cultures and religions (over in Asia) until certain European movements apparently misappropriated it and it became a symbol of bad luck, misfortune and death.

Are there any conspiracy theories about the swastika and/or the use of the symbol?

Shatkona and Swastika are symbols of the devil. Nazis and Zionists both his weapons.

An anceint symbol for spaceships, giant wheels of death an flame, and maybe also giant eyes that have eyes for days? Or was that something else?

Apparently in Norse, it was associated with Thor or even his hammer too.

+1 for a lego move reference. You definitely didnt let the oxygen out of my tank.

Cool thread - I didn’t know this about the swastika. The more you know...

Lol thanks.

Not to sound over presentive, but it turns out there actually is alot more depth to swastikas and how they are interpreted, individually to their own respecting culture, versus being almost recognizablly worldwide.

I got curious about how the Ancient Greek looked at( seeing as how they just love to argue about small things back then), and it not only symbolized life, but may have been a symbol for Zeus as well in some instances, to a majority of different thunder gods.

Even the bibical Cherubim or Thrones and how they are depicted may have iconically much like the swasitkas. Much like how the Garuda an Vimana are consider mounts or chariots in Hindu.

It only get weirder from there. Would love to try to make a thread about, but lack time an laptop, an also the mental stability for the time being to do it.

The swastika is actually based upon an ancient Hindu symbol.

Why look for conspiracy theories (entertainment) when the truth is so much more telling, intriguing and beneficial to boot:

Why Jehovah s Witnesses Don t Use The Cross Part 2 of 2 (playlist and context)

There is a symbol above the entrance door of the Lakshmi Marayan temple in New Delhi, India. And again, over the entranceway to a Bali temple of Indonesia. It appears on weights of the Ashanti people in Africa. You will also find it on magical chains of North American Indians. It can be seen on a depiction of the footprints of Buddha. A Roman Catholic abbot used it as his personal coat of arms. And Adolf Hitler made it the emblem of the Third Reich of Germany. Yes, it is the swastika.

From where did the swastika get its name? In Indian Buddhism the form of the symbol with angles to the right is called “swastika.” This is derived from the Sanskrit term “svasti,” meaning “object of well-being.”

Tracing the Use of the Swastika (Awake!—1970)

Where Hitler First Saw It

As Hitler wrote in his book Mein Kampf, he brought the swastika flag before the public for the first time in the summer of 1920. He and his associates were very enthusiastic about their new banner with its ancient motif. He said: “Its effect was as that of a firebrand.” But where did Hitler see the swastika for the first time?

Hitler first saw this symbol during his childhood. Back then he lived in a small village close to the Benedictine monastery at Lambach, Upper Austria. For a while he was a choirboy there and lived at the monastery during the winter of 1897-1898. There, chiseled into the wall above the spring grotto in the courtyard, was the date 1860 together with a swastika. The symbol was also located on the monastery portal.

Further, the personal coat of arms of Abbot Theoderich Hagn of the monastery in Lambach bore “a golden swastika with slanted points on a blue field.”* [Die Wappen des Benediktiner-Klosters Lambach und seiner Aebte, by George Gruell, pp. 20, 23.]

Did the swastika make an impression upon young Hitler at that time? The opinions vary. But in the book Aus Adolf Hitlers Jugendland und Jugendzeit (The Period and Land of Adolf Hitler’s Youth) the following is said about the Benedictine monastery in Lambach: “Here it was that Adolf Hitler first came into contact with the swastika. . . . Even though Adolf Hitler later may have had entirely different motives in adopting this symbol, the fact cannot be obliterated that he spent a portion of his childhood under that symbol.”​—Pp. 14-16.

In his book Oberdonau, die Heimat des Fuehrers (The Upper Danube, the Fuehrer’s Home), Robert Lenk writes: “Choirboy Adolf Hitler saw the angular sign of the sun-wheel for the first time on the escutcheon of the archway of Lambach.” (P. 102) In the same book the writer mentions six country churches of the reputedly strongly Catholic Muehlviertel of Upper Austria on which the swastika symbol appeared.​—P. 42.

To many readers it may seem strange that Hitler’s political symbol was also to be found in a religious setting. However, upon examining additional cases of the use of the swastika throughout the world, one will find that the more common meaning of the swastika is decidedly religious rather than political. This we will see as we trace the swastika back to its origin.
