Amazing! I had no idea this car company existed in America, and especially with that emblem?
I have to wonder if it even had the same name back then?
The word "swastika" comes from the ancient Sanskrit svastika. The symbol has been used by many cultures throughout the past 3,000 years to represent life, sun, power, strength and good luck, in many parts of Asia, North America and Europe. It began to be used a lot in Germany in the late 19th Century though it did not become a symbol of naziism and anti-semitism until Hitler appropriated the symbol as a 'logo' of the **** party in the 1920s. Some say the direction of the outer parts of the swastika determine whether it is a symbol of good or bad but this is not true; in ancient times it was drawn both ways and was always a symbol of good.
