But.... it is a holy symbol...
@ejen nailo, I was just about to say that. It was some sort of religious logo in Tibet, I believe, before the Nazis forever tainted it.
@Scott Sterling, some monk having religion. Probably that one
@ejen nailo, Yeah, sounds about right.
@ejen nailo, both Buddhism and Hinduism use the symbol.
@ejen nailo, only when it faces the other way, this is very clearly a Nazi symbol not a Buddhist symbol
@ejen nailo, the holy symbol is the opposite of the swastika
@Donald Drumpf, incorrect. Several religions use it and it is used in both directions.
@The Big Hodge, incorrect, see my reply to Drumpf.
@Scott Sterling, it has been used as a symbol for things like the sun, good luck, and auspiciousness it's sad that such a symbol was tainted by such terrible actions
@Scott Sterling, they also tilted it.
@Scott Sterling, it was used around the world for many religions, even the Celtic religions used it.
@Donald Drumpf, wrong again trump
@ejen nailo, I saw them while I was in china. They were in a city that was 1000 years old. Older than the wars. If I'm correct they mean peace there.
@Scott Sterling, in Hinduism and Buddhism it symbolizes peace within the self. Nothing "really religious" about it though, just from those contexts
Maybe fact check before you make yourself look like an idiot... it is a religious symbol...
To all the commenters who are saying "but it is a religious symbol", you are displaying knowledge but not wisdom. When you hear hoofbeats, do you automatically think of zebras?
Firstly, it's not really religious, it's more like a rune or talisman.
Secondly, it's pretty obvious that the guy wasn't complaining about that. The universal interpretation is that it's now primarily a Nazi symbol and the prior use is becoming obscure. Nobody wears a swastika expecting people to think it's a good luck charm.
@Truthcat, I wouldn't say universal. In western culture I'd say yes but I was surprised to find that many people from Asian countries see nothing wrong with it, as it's often posted in public places. Also, when it's tilted on its corner then it's a swastika
@Truthcat, you're an idiot if you look at that fan and the first thing you think is "NAZIS!".
@Doctor Krieger, I agree, and it seems kind of stupid that the guy thought it was worth complaining about. I just would have said "hee hee, a swastika". Plus, I didn't even see a swastika until I read the comment.
@Truthcat, also, the swastika is absolutely a religious symbol in multiple religions, including Hinduism and Buddhism. In Hinduism it represents something that brings about good fortune or health. In Buddhism it represents the concept of an eternal cycle.
Also, the swastika is absolutely used still, especially amongst the Hindu faith in India and other nearby West Asian nations.
@Truthcat, it's not even really a swastika. It's 4 lines, not connected.
@Doctor Krieger, says the possible genetic clone of Hitler
A swastika you say? I’ll take 10 of them please.
Company is wrong. Just bad design of the led. They should be ashamed.
@hasher2288, you're an idiot. Poor education. Your parents should be ashamed.
Technically if its not on an angle than it means peace so yeah religous is true
I wanna go buy it now
Lemme just drop some ww2 knowledge on you guys. That’s not the nazi swastika. That symbol means a wheel and hitler took it and angled it about 45 degrees to show the wheel turning (symbolizing progress) so unless it’s sitting on the corner it’s not a swastika it just means wheel
It was originally. But it has been badly corrupted
