    EYTYXEITE!

    Dear Fellows, I think that I have to clarify something more.
    Swastika is the main symbol of White Race. It ornates also Parthenon as well as many ancient places in Hellas, being the main symbol from prehistoric period until modern years for Hellentum.
    As you can see in Visual Arts' Thread ( "Ernst Ziller: a German Architect in Athens of 19th Century" ), Swastika is a primary decorative symbol strongly connected to our daily life.
    Wearing a Nazi medal first, is not possible to confuse others concerning the legality of bearing because ( 1) today, unfortunately, doesn't exist 3rd Reich, the proper Authority to give the order, ( 2 ) because of afterwars "laws" any decoration given by 3rd Reich is not recognizable, so doesn't mean that bearer is asking for some ...privileges! The only reason to bear such a medal is to f e e l all its power ( and these Items contain a lot ) alongside with the Symbol of Swastika which offers the best protection to the bearer.
    I never leave my home without to offer to myself the feeling of such a symbol!
    Kindest Regards!

But maybe that is just me.

    Yes the use of the swastika is very much intertwined among a large amount of ancient hellenic art, it is very beautiful & interesting to find expressions of it in the art, I have included a couple of pre-third reich examples of swastika use for interest's sake, these from the medieval period.

    Example of Teutonic Knight


    Order of the Knights Templar


    Also the use of Crusader's cross that was to inspire the later Iron Cross, in this is an example of the Teutonic Knights on a battle charge.

    Ok I thought I would also include to this "the mother's cross" of the third reich though not a literall Iron cross it can be considered the female equalivient of the award, as these were awarded to mother's along with cash incentives to produce larger families, they came in three classes, Gold,silver & Bronze depending on the amount of children beared by the mother in question.

    Gold-Bearing Eight or more children

    Silver-Bearing Six or Seven children

    Bronze-Bearing Four or Five children

    Examples of the three classes of the award.
