The word pagan came from paganus , who mean peasant . Its was a way to significate than christianism was the religion of the elite and paganism the one of the savage worker class.

''Trickster shows us how we trick OURSELVES. Her rampant curiosity backfires, but, then, something NEW is discovered (though usually not what She expected)! This is where creativity comes from—experiment, do something different, maybe even something forbidden, and voila! A breakthrough occurs! Ha! Ha! We are released! The world is created anew! Do something backwards, break your own traditions, the barrier breaks; destroy the world as you know it, let the new in.''

Not a Nazi plane. It is marked "U.S. Army".

Prior to being adopted by the Nazi party, the swastika was a common decorative good luck symbol borrowed by western designers from eastern religion.

And it's also a Boeing airplane.

Here's an article on the subject. BBC. It shows the same biplane picture: "How the world loved the swastika - until Hitler stole it"

Also not a Nazi-type swastika - that's rotated 45°.

The ancient symbol has the in a different position - NAZIs rotated it, which, when you consider the use it was put to as a symbol, is totally appropriate.

The Naval Amphibious Base Coronado in California, USA is "accidentally" shaped in a swastika. Positioned at a 45 degree angle.
Yeah right. So no one at any time during the first drafts, the preparation of the build and the build itself, never noticed the resemblance? Commissioned in 1944, during WWII. I don't know if the wings where all erected at the same time period, but I can not believe no one noticed the resemblance.

That said, as some of you noticed, the swastika has more meanings in many cultures around the world. It is, from a graphic point of view, a strong, mesmerizing and appealing collection of lines. It's got repetition, symmetric and good usage of space. I get the design aspect of Hitlers flag. Not many flags have a similar design.

The German Airforce used the cross patty in WWI. Also commonly used in several religious groups. Symbols are usually not pattented, so any person, group or country could use any symbol.

Not to go into politics, but right now a red hat with 4 letters on it can be seen as a symbol. Or a common object like a yellow vest can be turned into a political symbol. In some country's politicians use colors or animals as a symbol to stand out from the opponent political party.

Coronado is a connected island dividing the San Diego Bay from the Pacific Ocean. I lived in San Diego for 7 years. The only reason the Naval Amphibious Base, Coronado is "at a 45 degree angle" is because that is the longitudinal cardinal direction of the elongated island on the map with respect to the North.

San Diego Bay and Coronado Island. Note the bay and Coronado are largely occupied by Naval installations.

The outline of the building is a rectangle, not a square. So not exactly a Nazi Swastika, although I imagine there are some anti-government conspiracy websites out there pushing the idea. San Diego is a VERY large naval centre in the United States. I seriously doubt there are any Nazi sympathisers among their ranks.

Hilter  was obsessed with power symbols and the occult, and he appropriated a LOT of things .

The word "swastika "   comes from the Sanskrit meaning "conducive to well being or auspicious", which goes to show how very old it is.

In North America it is oft' called the whirlwind or whirling logs, and has been used by the Dineh ( Navajo) forover a thousand years. Numerous buildings
in the Great Southwest had a form of it incorporated into the architecture prior to WW2, which either led to minor renovations or an "understanding"....

I also saw a swastika once in a wargaming magazine article about samurai heraldry. House Suda, in fact.
