The swastika has to be one of the most important and controversial symbols in history.
Most people associate it with the Nazis, but it far predates them. I think it goes back even further than Atlantis times.
In addition to the below information, Ive researched that the swastika also symbolizes the torsion creative force of the cosmos.
Hitler and Himmler reversed it to have a new meaning for them: Sheer will by force and inevitable victory.
The American Boy Scouts used the symbol until 1933, and Native American tribes used it as well. It was a worldwide symbol, which gives some evidence of ancient worldwide high civilizations in my opinion.


From Ancient Origins website:

The Powerful Symbol of the Swastika and its 12,000 Year History

The swastika is a symbol that was used in the 20 th century by of one of the most hated men ever to have lived, a symbol that now represents the slaughter of millions of people and one of the most destructive wars on Earth. But Adolf Hitler was not the first to use this symbol. In fact, it was used as a positive and powerful symbol thousands of years before him, across many cultures and continents.

Spiritual Beginning for the Swastika
For the Hindus and Buddhists in India and other Asian countries, the swastika was an important symbol for many thousands of years and, to this day, the symbol can still be seen in abundance - on temples, buses, taxis, and on the cover of books. It was also used in Ancient Greece and Rome, and can be found in the remains of the ancient city of Troy, which existed 4,000 years ago. The ancient Druids and the Celts also used the symbol, reflected in many artifacts that have been discovered. It was used by Nordic tribes, and even early Christians used the Swastika as one of their symbols, including the Teutonic Knights , a German medieval military order, which became a purely religious Catholic Order. But why is this symbol so important and why did Adolf Hitler decide to use it?

Positive Days of the Swastika
The word ‘swastika’ is a Sanskrit word (‘svasktika’) meaning ‘It is’, ‘Well Being’, ‘Good Existence, and ‘Good Luck’. However, it is also known by different names in different countries - like ‘Wan’ in China, ‘Manji’ in Japan, ‘Fylfot’ in England, ‘Hakenkreuz’ in Germany and ‘Tetraskelion’ or ‘Tetragammadion’ in Greece.

In 1979, a Sanskrit scholar P. R. Sarkar said that the deeper meaning of the word is ‘Permanent Victory’. He also said that like any symbol it can have positive and negative meaning depending on how it is drawn. So in Hinduism, the right-hand swastika illustrated below is a symbol of the God Vishnu and the Sun, while the left-hand swastika is a symbol of Kali and Magic.


The double meaning of symbols is common in ancient traditions , like for example the symbol of the pentagram (five pointed star), which is viewed as negative when pointing downwards, and positive when pointing upwards.

12,000 Years of Symbolism
The earliest swastika ever found was uncovered in Mezine, Ukraine, carved on an ivory figurine which dates back an incredible 12,000 years. One of the earliest cultures that are known to have used the Swastika was a Neolithic culture in Southern Europe, in the area that is now Serbia, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, known as the Vinca Culture, which dates back around 8,000 years.

In Buddhism, the swastika is a symbol of good fortune, prosperity, abundance and eternity. It is directly related to Buddha and can be found carved on statues on the soles of his feet and on his heart. It is said that it contains Buddha’s mind.

On the walls of the Christian catacombs in Rome, the symbol of the Swastika appears next to the words “ZOTIKO ZOTIKO” which means “Life of Life”. It can also be found on the window openings of the mysterious Lalibela Rock churches of Ethiopia, and in various other churches around the world.

In Nordic Myths , Odin is represented passing through space as a whirling disk or swastika looking down through all worlds. In North America, the swastika was used by the Navajos. In Ancient Greece, Pythagoras used the Swastika under the name ‘Tetraktys’ and it was a symbol linking heaven and earth, with the right arm pointing to heaven and its left arm pointing to Earth.
It has been used by the Phoenicians as a symbol of the Sun and it was a sacred symbol used by the priestesses.

How and why did so many diverse countries and cultures, across many eras, use the same symbol and apparently with the same meaning?
It is ironic, and unfortunate, that a symbol of life and eternity that was considered sacred for thousands of years has become a symbol of hatred.


I also found this swastika documentary to be pretty darn good. It at least mentions the Thule and Vril Societies. It clears up a lot of myths.

The symbol itself it's pretty simplistic in a sense that it can resemble too many things. My guess is this:
View attachment 2447
This is 100% arctic symbolism, aka Paradise/Heaven symbolism. Interesting thought to put the Big Dipper in place. But we should also consider the four Dwarves (Nordri, Sudri, Austri and Vestri - North, South, East and West), the four Winds (Boreas, Zephyrus, Notus, Eurus).
In support of your view we have the image of the Auriga who drives the chariot with four horses...

The word swastika comes from Sanskrit: स्वस्तिक, romanized: svástika, meaning 'conducive to well-being'. In Hinduism, the right-facing symbol (卐) is called swastika, symbolizing surya ('sun'), prosperity and good luck, while the left-facing symbol (卍) is called sauvastika, symbolizing night or tantric aspects of Kali.

Saw this so much when in India but mostly the un-stylised version, on big buildings, temples and some just scribbles on random pieces of rock, none of the "western" shame was attached to it whatsoever!

The swastika probably reprents the Sun in his movement from right to left (looking towards the North Pole). In particular this is the "going up" of the Sun towards the top of the sacred mountain. The Sun never reaches the top, but goes around and up until the Summer solstice.
Then the Sun goes down until "he" disappears behind the horizon. This is the sauvastika. If we follow the direction of the Sun towards South (and therefore looking towards the Equator), we will see a movement from left to right. The Sun "goes down" until the Winter solstice.
All of this obviously from the perspective of people inhabiting the Northern Hemisphere.

This is not the point of view from an artict perspective, but should anyway illustrate what I mean.
In the first case you are looking towards the Pole and the Sun goes "up" from the East on your right to the West on your left (swastika).
In the second case if you look towards the Equator instead of the Pole, the Sun goes "down" from the East on your left to the West on your right (sauvastika).

I can't help feeling that the use of the swastika was a direct snub at christianity and revenge by a certain group of peoples and this is just another cog in that wheel because as we now the whole christ story is just the resurrection of the sun at our Christmas time, which is just a rehash of the Mithra story and countless others, many subliminal's, wars are always religious and as i see it a war for our souls.

Apart from recent historical wars and politics, the whole movement for the discovery of the meaning behind myths and legends began in various parts of Europe by different authors. I am personally glad that they did it...

For sure a SOLAR symbol.

North pole linking may comes from SHU (swa) -Shoah- Shuas-tika.
The same scheme for SHU-eden (SWEDEN).


BUT more interestingly to me it's relating Swastika and Black Sun.

Soon, I will be posting the new radical chronology of history model of the atom, where the swastika must be an integral part of the two counter-rotating tetrahedrons (one is a shadow of the other). The swastika is an acoustic turbine.

With there being such a short period of time between WWI and WWII, it has always struck me as strange that the swastika was used on war memorials, like Balmoral and Swansea.
