I did a search but found no discussions on WR about the swastika. I am curious to know if this ancient symbol is used in your country, and if so, what is its meaning? I thought of this because years ago a Korean friend made me a beautifully decorated "hat" box. It has the swastika symbol on all sides and on the top. I never displayed it very prominently, because my cultural association with it is the holocaust - which is a shame because is such an ancient symbol with many meanings, none of them having to do with genocide or racial purity. So, I wanted to hear about how you percieve the swastika, if it is prominent in your culture, what does it represent to you and what is its signifigance in your society? If you entered someon'es house and saw the symbol, would you immediately associate it with the Third Reich and nazis, or would it seem normal because it is part of the decoration of an object? Thanks!
