I had heard Hitler got it from Hinduism and the Vedas.I find it interesting that the Swastica is also found on this 1872 image of Thor http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/2/23/Thor.jpg (link because it is an extreamly high res image) and it is claimed that Hitler may have had something to do with a distorted version of Odinism.
(the Swastica is on Thor's Belt)
Yeah, I thought that too. I thought it was missing something like loyalty or duty."honesty, truth, purity and stability" I guess he used it for the "purity'. Kind of ironic that a complete nutter used a flag that included "stability" ... isn't truth and honesty the same thing?
