How the world loved the swastika - until Hitler stole it

    It's amazing how society chooses to interpret symbols often without regard to majority influence.

    How many times have we seen a Victorian souvenir teapot stand offered as a Nazi item because of it having a large swastika in the middle?

    The swastika is commonly associated with wedding celebration in India and Carlsberg brewery used it as a trade mark!

    The Nazis only borrowed it briefly from world culture.

    Regards
