i have a copy of this photo in the book "The Gentle Swastika - Reclaiming The Innocence" by ManWoman... it is a canadian girls hockey team called The Swastikas from edmonton, alberta circa 1918.

i'm not convinced that manwoman is the source of the photo, since it was taken before he was born, but his book is where i saw it first... manwoman is my example when it comes to swastikas, and it's possible that he's got more information about it. it's my impression that the main reason he has the photo is because he's trying to show people that the swastika was a sign of good luck, even in the west, before it was a nazi symbol.

I studied Hinduism for about a decade. I have a Ganesha with a little swastika on his belly right on my front door.

I recall that the yearbooks from Georgia Tech in the 1920s show the KKK as a campus org. Times change.

Also, at the <a=href "http://www.cabq.gov/kimo/KimoPostcard4.html">Kimo</a> <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kimo_Theater">Theater</a> in Albuquerque, NM. I can't find any good pix of them yet, but they're on the shields that line the proscenium over the stage.

I remember when crucifixes were things I could wrap a string around and fire an arrow with.

Damned Pontius Pilate.

The Nazi's didnt take the Swastika from the Hindus, they took the Fylfot - Which is Odinist/Germanic Neo Paganism.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fylfot

They believed to provided the same thing as the swastika - Good Luck, Fortune and Truth.

But whats in a symbol

In fact the path the swastika goes to finally get into the NSDAP flag wasn't odinist.
Blavatsky took it from hinduism;
Guido Von List, austrian, took it from Blavatsky and convert it a part of a pseudo runic alphabet;
Liebenfels took it from List to his racist-germanist ONT (Ordo Novo Templi) flag;
Sebotendorf took it from Liebenfels and put it in the Thule Gesellschaft flag, from where was taken to create the NSDAP imaginery.

Baradit.
