    Took this photo in Groningen museum last week of some old Oriental ceramics.
    Thought it'd fit this thread quite well.

    The image in the first post makes me think of the Isle of Man.

    Funny , a few months ago I was walking down my hall and noticed the the East Asian people next to me had decorated their door step with a swastika symbol. I recognized immediately that it was an ancient symbol of significance to their culture. Others less cognizant may have been insulted as it has since been removed.

    "...wore on their left shoulders an ancient American Indian symbol of good luck, most commonly referred to as..."


    Blimey, the Yanks are claiming ownership of something else?!
    Maybe I'll email them and suggest removing the "American"!

    I think this is a fair point context is everything, the NSDAP did not have ownership of the emblem but certainly anything outside of history , or culture and anything which involves its association with racial or political issues should be brought sharply to order.

    I always wondered about this clothing company and their logo...

    What have you wondered about this clothing company? They are based in the northwest US and are probably about as un-fascist (if that is a word) as they come.

    I wondered why they like to use a swastika as their logo...
