in korea and japan if you look on a map of some kind a lot of times they use a swastika to represent temples. i dont think swastika = nazism is as prevalent in asia as it is in the west

The religious swastika is opposite of the nazi one.

For it to be nazi related the arms should point the other direction.
post #108648 of 109053
no the religious one points either way and so did the nazi symbol. plenty of old examples for both

some people then try to make the distinction that the nazi one is tilted 45 degrees but the original ones were 90 degrees

also didn't nazis use it because of the religious connotation? i think for them it was a reference to their indian/aryan origins

i remember seeing it also in navajo and hopi art when i travelled near the reservations

I can't remember the reasoning behind it, but today (the 4th) is the 70th anniversary of Denmarks liberation from the German occupation during WW2.

+1. In Japanese maps, the "backwards" (ie traditional) swastika is used to indicate the location of temples.

 

Also, when I was travelling through Indonesia many years ago, I stayed in a little hotel called the "Swastika Bungalows". Ironically, it was located opposite the local German Consulate!

I could be wrong, but I'm pretty sure that the arms on the Nazi swastika only ever pointed in a clockwise direction (ie pointing to the right). I guess that they might seem to be pointing to the left in some old photos if the negative's been reversed.

hey guys i've got a great idea - let's start the "are swastikas offensive?" argument again!

i'm fairly certain before the NSDAP officially adopted the symbol they used both left and right swastikas.

In some countries, they actually use children to make swastikas.

re: mechanic's belts, i like this one from makr a little more than the billykirk:

 

post #108657 of 109053

What's the general consensus on belts like that last one? I kinda like how minimalist it is.

Not certain they have one but Kowtow might be a good brand to look at

With a cooler I can put fish that I catch in it. Or sandwiches. And beverages. And vegetables that I harvest for market. And popsicles for my students. And meat from long fishing/hunting trips.

I've been looking for the boots for a while. And with boots I can have a misplaced sense of superiority for wearing expensive clothing while looking like a total crusty. Normally I would always opt for unjustified feelings of contempt for mouthbreathing plebes, but these days I mostly just wanna kick back and cast the fly. Maybe snag some trout for dinner. Then again, I can do all that while having fly ass boots too.

After reading this post I have to ask what the fuck is wrong with me

I think i have to give up fashion after reading this
