Will the SWASTIKA symbol also be used in the coming FOURTH REICH?
Until the Nazis used this symbol, the swastika was used by many cultures throughout the past 3,000 years to represent life, sun, power, strength, and good luck.

The word "swastika" comes from the Sanskrit svastika - "su" meaning "good," "asti" meaning "to be," and "ka" as a suffix. The swastika is an extremely powerful symbol and for centuries it had positive meanings.

The swastika is an ancient symbol that has been used for over 3,000 years. (That even predates the ancient Egyptian symbol, the Ankh!) Artifacts such as pottery and coins from ancient Troy show that the swastika was a commonly used symbol as far back as 1000 BCE.

During the following thousand years, the image of the swastika was used by many cultures around the world, including in China, Japan, India, and southern Europe. By the Middle Ages, the swastika was a well known, if not commonly used, symbol but was called by many different names:

China - wan
England - fylfot
Germany - Hakenkreuz
Greece - tetraskelion and gammadion
India - swastika

For 3,000 years, the swastika meant life and good luck. But because of the Nazis, it has also taken on a meaning of death and hate.

These conflicting meanings are causing problems in today's society. For Buddhists and Hindus, the swastika is a very religious symbol that is commonly used.

Though it is not known for exactly how long, Native Americans also have long used the symbol of the swastika.

So, will the coming 4th Reich use it, or will there be a new symbol?

The National Socialist German Worker's Party used the swastika for same reason ancient cultures did.

Those reasons are why they chose it

Guess time will only tell but they will have some sort of symbol - you can bet on that.

Resurrecting the Swastika wouldn't surprise given it's hidden in plain sight all over.

This article is a real deep explanation of the history and meaning of the swastika. It was the primary Christian symbol until about 300 a.d.

It's a lively read.
