Todo el mundo adoraba la esvástica antes de la segunda guerra mundial


Un interesante post sobre como una panda de idiotas pueden conseguir que un símbolo que durante muchos años significó buena suerte ahora esté mal visto. Es curioso ver como antes de la alemania nazi, la esvástica era un símbolo común en muchos sitios. El post original es este: http://www.sharenator.com/All_the_world_loved_Swastika_before_WWII/ (esto es un copipega). Si tenéis cualquier problema con el inglés, dejadme una notilla, que se os resuelve asín to fast.

Swastika as a symbol of luck was widely used long before WWII. It was Nazis who made it a taboo. I’ve made a collection of pictures illustrating pre-WWII uses of Swastika. You may be surprised where and how widely it was used. Let the pictures speak for themselves.
