The Swastika (6/7)

Thousands of years before Hitler turned the Swastika into the most feared and hateful symbols in the world, it had a completely different meaning. It represented Good Luck and well-being in dates as far back as 2 Century BCE.

It is considered a sacred symbol even today in many eastern religions like Hinduism and Buddhism and can be spotted in temples and homes. However, by 1920, this symbol got associated with the German ideology of ‘pure’ race and was later adopted by the Nazi party during the World War-II.
