Swastikas in Ancient Greek Culture

June 16, 2013 |  

(Minghui.org) The ancient historical meanings of the swastika symbol have been lost to many since the Second World War. Hitler and the Nazis took this sacred symbol, the symbol of the Buddha, and twisted it to serve their own corrupt and evil agenda. But the swastika has a history stretching back thousands of years, long before the Nazis. It has been a symbol of good fortune, the universe and the Buddha – a symbol cherished and revered in numerous cultures throughout eons of history.

The image above shows examples of the use of swastikas in ancient Greek architecture, pottery, frescoes and more.
