Hi, Franklin
The swastika is actually an ancient religious symbol. (Check out a Greek cross if you can.) It dates back some time but still exists as a religious symbol in India, China, Japan, etc. and even among American Indians. It's believed to be a symbol of good luck. Most familiar to many of us, of course, is its use by the Nazis. Go figure...

In Dharma
Heather
