Coca-Cola swastika

In 1925 Coca Cola made a lucky watch fob in the shape of a swastika with the slogan, “Drink Coca Cola five cents in bottles.” At that time, the Swastika was still a symbol of ‘Good Luck’. The watch fob is approximately 4cm x 4cm in size and is made of brass.

    It has been a holy religious symbol for Hindus, Buddhists, and other cultures long before Hitler got a hold of it. It has probably been a symbol of good fortune, luck and prosperity for thousands of years in the world’s oldest religion “Hinduism” and it still means the same thing. No matter what Hitler may have done he can’t change the reality of this holy symbol and the beautiful meaning it has to billions around the world as a religious symbol of good fortune. Hindus know it for what it is and those who are educated do not look upon it as something evil.

    The swastika is an ancient religious symbol for Hindus and Buddhists that means “good fortune and prosperity”. That is the real meaning of it as it has been for thousands of years before Adolf Hitler borrowed it and used it for his campaign of hate and ignorance. In spite of Hitlers’s use of the swastika and the bad meaning it has in many peoples minds, it is still a holy symbol for billions in the world and it still means “good fortune and prosperity”. It is also interesting that the “star of David” is also a holy symbol in the Hindu religion and just like the swastika it too was “borrowed” and used for other things. That is fine in that context, but Hitler was an evil person who has polluted the reputation of the swastika, but has not changed its meaning and educated people who know what it really means know its connection for thousands of years to both Hindus and Buddhists. In Hindu religious art you can find both the swastika and the star of David side by side as they have been for thousands of years before both Hitler, or Judaism was ever born. To disrespect the swastika and what is really stands for is an insult to religious people worldwide who had nothing to do with Hitler and are angry that his connection to it has caused so much hate and misunderstanding.
