Ohh - The bricks!!

I didn't see the swastika in the bricks until - You higlighted it in red!!!

I agree - That is swastika.
I was looking at the logos - Not the bricks... Amazing-

but this Chase bank is clearly not the case. you dont see both swastikas being used... only ONE DIRECTION.... which is clockwise.... which spirals down.

But why the arbitrarily distinction? The Chase doesn’t like balance?

There’s no “good” and “bad” swastikas, there’s just a particular version (out of many)that was corrupted by a an evil totalitarian regime.

I’ve recently finished reading David Rockefeller’s Memoirs, and the bank’s main objective is to keep business channels open, no matter how repressive the client government is. Their goal is profits. They are evil enough already. IMO, you're just barking up the wrong tree on this one.

What exactly do you think the Chase would gain from sneaking in a few swastikas around their ATM machines. (aside from a PR nightmare)

Could you point out which ones of these or good and which ones are bad?

Ps I live in a Buddhist country. The orientation is purely irrelevant. I often see Nazi stickers on vehicles and Nazi headbands for sale at the market. Most people just don’t know the difference, and have not studied western history. There are unaware of its evil implication.

The swastikas (in either orientation) appear on the chest of some statues of Gautama Buddha and is often incised on the soles of the feet of the Buddha in statuary. Because of the association with the right facing swastika with Nazism, Buddhist swastikas (outside India only) after the mid-20th century are almost universally left-facing:

BattleofBatoche, indeed Prescott Bush had most of his businesses and his bank seize by the US government for doing business with the enemy, ie Nazis. This is not hidden, just it isn’t really talked about in the mainstream.

place a plus sign in the middle of the blue Chase logo; you will see the swastika.

The reverse swastika is an occult symbol, thought to hold a lot of power. This is the reason it was chosen by the nazi's, and it represents probably the most overlooked fact of hitler's reign....he was as much after occult object of power(such as the spear) as he was ethnic cleansing.

Dont doubt that there is some meaning to this.

Do you have a link to this informaiton, hopefully with images?

A lot of banks and currency use swasktikas. Find logo for the bank of Ulster for example. The 5 pound note from ulster also has a swastika on the back. The columbian 20peso piece also has one. So does the Pourtugese version of the 2euro piece. I'm always looking for more if anyone else has their eyes out.

The Chase bank logo is actually a stylized version of Manhattan's ancient wooden water pipes, not a swastika. There's some connection to Aaron Burr, but I forget the significance.

I thought we were going back to using large discs of salt and stone for currency.

Why do I always miss these memos?

The swastika is actually a Hindu symbol that the Nazis adopted. Nothing evil about the Hindus but the Nazis abused it. The Chase logo is really more of an Octagon comprised of two offset squares...which is more of an Islamic symbol if you really want to know. SHIAaaaT you dont say?

Yeah lets start adding stuff to symbols and figure out what evil signs we find.

Wow, where have I been for the last 3 years? I just noticed today that Chase, who I am about to close my acount with because of this by the way, has the swastika within their symbol. I stumbled across some other interesting video's and forums as I was searching for "who owns Chase Bank" and this is one link that I found to be very informative and interesting, especially the video posted by a person who uses the name "Anonymous Coward"...go check it out. Might shed some light on many misconceptions out there. But then that all depends on what you believe. There is a way that seems right to a man, but the end thereof is death. All that's happening in the world today with the government comes straight from the Word of God Himself.

Stll, most people see the swastika as a nazi/evil symbol and will alwaysbe remembered and thought of that way. That is disgusting chase put that on thier wall...
I was in poland vacationing, in 1992, i was 17 at the time. One day, in southern poland( city of Krakow i belive it was) we went into a church..It had gold in it, missing gold the nazis looted..and in the windows, were painted glass swastikas! I rememerb looking at them with my mouth jaw dropped open,a nd asking my g/f(polish girl WTF are they doing on the windows? She an her aunt botht old me, the church dates back to the late 1200's..Back then, the swastika was a common symbol roman catholic churches used. It was hitler tha took it, as a propaganda symbol and used it in a wrong way.. I never knew that!
The swastika of course, will alwasy be rememebred being bad, because of if nazism and the death camps.I visited Auschitz, and i damn near almost bursted out in tears, and what he showed us. In fact, we went into what was Joseph Mengelas office(which is now a muesum, filled wih air tight galss with actualy gypsy hair, glasses, gold teeth, breifcases, cloths, and empty cans od Zyclone B aka hydroen cianide).
so, at least to me, no matter how religous to god the swastika is/was it will always be a symbol of terror to me. Hell, my mother came here to USA in 1950 from Austria, probably becuase of german activity.

Even the Buddha from Hong Kong has a swavastika on his big old chest, CCW swastika.

To add another culture that used the 'swastika' prior to the Nazis, this shape turns up on a fair few Anglo-Saxon items.

This urn is 5th or 6th century and was found in Norfolk (the one in England).

It turns up on sword hilts, broaches &c.

It's hardly surprising that this design turns up in so many countries and cultures. From a design stand point, there's only so many rudimentary geometric figures you can create or are workable on many different media.

Whilst many otherwise separate cultures were connected by trade - always a conduit for cultural influence - there's no real reason to believe that this symbol was universally understood. It's been suggested that in Anglo-Saxon and Norse cultures that the swastika was related to burial customs, which has a fairly different context than the way it's usually interpreted.

Please let me clarify that the video within the link of the last post I made does in no way consider the swastika to be a good or godly symbol either. If you will watch the entire video you will see how that it explains in much detail how the Vaticans (the Roman Catholic Church) own the government and the swastika is just one of many symbols they have used and are still using today to propagate their self-inflicted lordship over our nation and other nations around the world.

I think we should all get away from symbolism. Wearing a cross cannot make one good or righteous. Wearing a swastika doesn't make one evil. They are simply outward symbols of what exists on the inside already or of what one may wish others to portray of them.

2 Chronicles 7:14
If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

Dear Valued Customer,

Thank you for contacting Chase.

The search for a new symbol began in 1959 when Chase Vice
Chairman David Rockefeller selected the design firm
Chermayeff & Geismar Associates to develop an abstract,
contemporary, and universal symbol to reflect Chase
Manhattan's increasing global presence, and to accompany
the bank's new modern world headquarters under
construction in Lower Manhattan - a sleek 60-story glass
and aluminum office building. At the time, the bank was
using a complex and cluttered trademark that incorporated
branding elements from the firms' two main heritage banks,
The Bank of The Manhattan Company and Chase National Bank,
which had merged only five years earlier to form Chase
Manhattan. It's current logo wasn't easily read and was,
therefore, perceived as ineffective. Chase wanted a symbol
that would be more attractive and identifiable, and, at
Rockefeller's directive, the designers were asked to
invent an abstract iconic form.

Chermayeff & Geismar created a logo that was simple,
attractive, and timeless. This
non-representational geometric form was thought to be best
for several reasons:

at the time there was no abstract, representational symbol
of modern banking,
a monogram using the bank's initials would not allow for
future name changes, and
the new modern bank building under construction - One
Chase Manhattan Plaza - was not easily identifiable as a

The octagon was introduced in November 1960 to coincide
with the completion of One Chase Manhattan Plaza. Along
with new Chase Manhattan logotype, it was used in all
advertising, publications, stationery, and signage. Press
releases and brochures described the octagon's dynamic
design as "a simple yet powerful geometric form embodying
a strong feeling of motion and activity. Although
self-contained, it is divided in such a way as to suggest
forward motion within the framework of control. the
activity is centered around the square, implying growth
from a central foundation ." At the time, one Public
Relations Vice President noted, "When the symbol is
established by constant use, we believe that people will
identify it with The Chase Manhattan Bank at a glance."
