    Building in my hometown in Norway. Not sure when it was built, or if the swastikas are an original part of the facade, but it's likely from before the war.

    Lysverksgården in Oslo, Norway with its gate from 1932.
    In 1998, a German tourist collapsed at seeing it and called it an "Albert Speer facade".

    Architect Georg Eliassen's drawing.

    Different versions is also found in the street stone of Universitetsplassen (1931), as anchor iron on "Rųverborgen" at Rådhusgata 28 (1916) and on a couple of millions of iron nails produced at Christiania Spikerverk till 1945.

    The day the swastika flew beside the union jack in Britain

    The day the Swastika flew beside the Union Jack

    The photograph was printed in a German paper and tracked down by a German archivist.

    A fuzzy newspaper image may be a record of the only time a union jack and a Nazi swastika flew together in Britain, experts have said.

    The recently discovered photograph was taken during a German boxing team's visit to Nottingham in October 1936. Despite tension rising between the countries, visits between groups and societies were common. The flags were flown together outside Nottingham's now demolished County Hotel to welcome the Stuttgart Police boxing club.

    Despite World War One, Britain maintained strong links with Germany, even as the regime of Hitler took over. A desire to support these links led to a number of events, These included the swastika flying over White Hart Lane football ground in 1935 and, perhaps most infamously, the England football team giving the Nazi salute in Berlin in 1938. Professor Julie Gottlieb, an expert in modern history, said: "We often forget how cordial relations were between Britain and Germany; there was an Anglo-German fellowship. "The two countries were trading partners up until 1939.

    Mr Andrews has researched Nottingham's wartime police chief constable, Athelstan Popkess. He said: "Popkess was keen on his officers doing sports, especially boxing, and competing against other police teams. "This resulted in a goodwill visit with Stuttgart police, with Nottingham's team going over to Germany first. "I had heard accounts of the two flags flying together but didn't think there were any photos." On hearing the story, a contact of Mr Andrews checked in the Stuttgart police archives. "And he found the photo but didn't know which building it was on, so I tracked down the location," he added. "It shows the two flags side by side just three years before the war broke out.”

    During the same Nottingham visit, the German boxing team gave a Nazi salute to the statue of WWI pilot Albert Ball.

    Britain had its own far-right party, led by fascist Oswald Mosley. The British Union of Fascists (BUF) claimed 50,000 members in the early 1930s and was involved in several high-profile public disturbances. Prof Gottlieb said: "But they never used the swastika. As an ultra nationalist and patriotic movement, it prolifically used the union jack.

    The British Union of Fascists, led by Oswald Mosley, claimed 50,000 members in the early 1930s.

    "When, by the mid 1930s, the BUF was aligning itself more with the Nazi regime, it changed its own symbol to the flash in the circle - which got them the nickname 'flash in the pan'. "But they were never really a major political force - more concern was focused on fascist tendencies in government.

    The day the Swastika flew in Britain. 12 IX 2021.

    Without Churchill and the jewish 'focus' group bribing him WW II would not have happened.
