Before it became the Nazi symbol of Aryan superiority, the swastika had several meanings, all positive.
In Sanskrit, the word swastika means “conducive to well-being.”
The Aryans of India believed swastikas represented the sun’s motion across the sky, a symbol of its goodness and regenerative power.
The Greeks and Persians believed it represented prosperity and happiness.
Early Christians disguised the cross as a swastika to avoid persecution.
North American Indian tribes used a similar symbol as a sign of peace.
