The Origins of the Swastika :

To Many people's surprise, the "Nazi" symbol was not an original design. The image was stolen from India. Though the symbol itself (or variations of it) can be found in all Ancient cultures around the world. The word "Swastika" came from the Sanskrit word "Suastika". It means among many other things, some of which are, good luck, well being, peace, eternity and so forth. It is still widely used in India today. Specifically in Hinduism, Buddhism and Jainism.
