The swastika symbol can be found in archaeological sites all over the world. These relics show that the swastika has a long history. In modern times, the swastika is most famous as the corporate logo for the Nazi party of Hitler's Germany. Before that, it had an exalted Indian history and played a role in many religions, not least of which was Buddhism and esoteric Hinduism. Generally, the swastika is a symbol meaning "good fortune." Most people seem to have forgotten that.
