    The swastika (from ]Sanskrit: svástika स्वस्तिक ) is an ]equilateral]cross with its arms bent at ]right angles, in either right-facing (卐) form or its mirrored left-facing (卍) form. The swastika can also be drawn as a traditional swastika, but with a second 90° bend in each arm.
    Archaeological evidence of swastika-shaped ornaments dates from the ]Neolithic period. An ancient symbol, it occurs mainly in the cultures that are in modern day ]India and the surrounding area, sometimes as a geometrical motif (as in the Roman Republic and Empire) and sometimes as a religious symbol. It was long widely used in major world religions such as ]Hinduism, ]Buddhism and ]Jainism.

    yeye i know the council i work at had a competition where people made decorations and loads of ppl used this sign, i found out that hitler used this sign and changed it from peace to an anarchy symbol, im not a racist person it was just meant as a goodwill gesture, besides my cats are black, i dont discriminate.

    Thanks for that... I really didn't know what is was. Seen it many a time... but not a clue!

    It's sad that it's seen as a symbol of hate and racist now.

    Of course it was a goodwill gesture... I just wanted to clarify as many people only reconise the symbol for what Hitler made it!! :x
