I guess you could look at it two ways:

1: what it means now in the 21st century
2: what it meant during the reign of the nazi's
i'm just looking for what people think in their head a swastika is all about...now, then...future

I thought it was just the symbol the nazi's used as thier trademark. kind of like the hammer and sickle the soviet union had.

you guys put way to much thought into things. it is what it is.

Peace and unity, It all depends on the person i guess, I had it as my avatar but I took it off because what you guys thought of it. But if I wanted to be a dick I could put it back on just because you guys can be dicks about it. But if I say it means peace and unity thats what it means to me and you should not beable to say a dam thing about it. and if i decide to put it back on thats what it means not that im going to because i respect xenon decsion.

BTW:and if you think it just stands for nazi, that makes you a BIG ASSHOLE

The swastika is an old symbol from South and South-East Asia. Don't know what it means (if I remember correctly, it has something to do with the sun), but it's not a negative symbol, like the nazi's abused it...

Yeah, but a symbol with a very bitter taste nowadays.....
I agree!!


The thing about your guys comment, about what it means in a different language, is that people dont see it as that. Most people make the connection with the swastika as a tie in with Hitler and the Nazi's. When most people view the swastika they think of him and his military in which case causes them to think of all the sh*t that he did to the Jews and others. I mean even the German's in Germany hate what he did and dislike anyone who dares to show off the swastika.

Yeah my German friend does not even wear or have any collectiosn of this symbol due to its symbolic significance. For many people it brings up too many horrible thoughts, so it is best not to bother if it can be avoided in my opinion. So my opinion is even if it can symbolize other factors I would not reccomend using it so due to the negative connection related

If your going to use that kind of language here in the forum, with the excessive manner as you did, you might as well save the sorry's for Xe and take it over PM.
