The Buddhist Swastika Vs. Nazi Hakenkreuz
The word Swastika comes from India, not Germany. The reason America uses it is because before the war it was in widespread use. EX:
American Swastika Flag
American Swastika Postcard
The word swastika is derived from the Sanskrit svastika (in Devanagari, स्वस्तिक), meaning any lucky or auspicious object, and in particular a mark
made on persons and things to denote good luck. It is composed of su- (cognate with Greek ευ-, "eu-"), meaning "good, well" and asti a verbal abstract to the root as "to be"; svasti thus means "well-being". The suffix -ka forms a diminutive, and svastika might thus be translated literally as "little thing associated with well-being".
The swastika symbol is one of the oldest symbols on the Earth and can be found in all religions and traditions, on all continents!
