The swastika

For those that hadn't noticed, I have strong anti-authoritarian tendancies. I couldn't be any further from being a Nazi. I must say though, I find the swastika as a symbol eerily compelling. It is, in my opinion, the best flag design I've ever seen.

Nazi germany is unusual in history for being the most succesful (for a brief period) totalitarian regime of the 20th century. How much did their symbols contribute to their success?

The swastika was an ancient symbol of good luck in asia, after all. But I really don't think the actual design of their flag really contributed to the success of nazism/fascism in Germany/Italy.

Wasn't just the flag - the Nazis used a hell of a lot of powerful symoblism to promote its ideology amongst Germans. In my opinion, appearances play a far greater role than most people imagine.

Probably not that much, since the Hindus had it first and it didn't do jack shit for them when they got pwned hardcore by the Union Jack.

Agreed, I find the Nazi flag to be extremely powerful looking.

you like the nazi flag because it represents something that is "not okay" in our society. ie: if you were to wave it around people would get pissed at you. this is what attracts you to it.

To be perfectly honest, I find the "arm salute" to be very powerful and moving. For some reason, and I feel somewhat guilty, I actually like it. It was symbolic in the sense that it conveyed a strong feeling of pride, confidence, and power.

To be honest the Nazi flag and the Soviet Union flags are the coolest flags ever. The swastika does look pretty cool.

It looks like red is a pretty good symbol for power. It just gets your attention. Also the swastika and the star, hammer and sickle look pretty intimidating as well.

The funny thing about the hammer and sickle is that although they look scary the sickle was meant to represent peasants and the hammer was meant to represent the workers. Pretty innocent meaning in my opinion.

The swatika is symmetrical. The human brain finds symmetry attractive. The red background stands out like a stop sign and is usually associated with danger. Red Alert!

I think that the Reichskriegsflagge is one of the most powerful flags I've ever seen.

again, pretty badass. That iron cross and swastika with the black and white just looks intimidating.

I was watching this history channel show on Nazis and one jewish servant said that when their uniforms were being cleaned they were frail old men, when they were back in the uniform they were monsters. Sometimes appearence IS everything.
