Swastika Stickpin

Article about: Hello Everyone, Today I will be displaying my swastika stickpin. I do not know much about this and have seen many similar but never any that are the same. It has "sterling" printed

    I wasn't aware of that, thanks for the added information! By the way, Fanta was created by the Germans as a substitute for CocaCola, after they couldn't get the cola syrup any longer...
    cheers, Glenn

    Wow! All this information is incredible. Glenn, your items that you showed me are very neat! It is fascinating to see the different ways the Swastika was used. Thanks again for posting!

    A swastika is a very old symbol that has different versions spread across many cultures and religions. It was considered a good luck symbol pre-war and were sold on pins and chains as trinkets.

    This is a picture of Matilde Moisant wearing a swastika as good luck, I thought it was kind of interesting!

    It looks like to me a east asian swastika. These were, and still are, a symbol of good luck there and they adorn many Buddhist temples. As for the swastika not having the same meaning before WWII, here's one of my favorite examples; Swastika Ontario

    Hey Thad,

    Take a look at the bottom end of this page from a thread here awhile back:

    This is turning out to be an interesting thread! Thanks for the input gentlemen! Woolgar.... I liked that you incorporated the Elefant (Tank Destroyer) into your response. Nice to see haha

    Surprised nobody mentioned the US 45th Infantry division used the swastika on their divisional insignia till it was replaced by a thunderbird before WWII.
