The Swastika and the Hakenkreuz are two symbols that have historical and
cultural significance but are associated with different contexts and meanings.
Origins and Cultural Significance of Swastika:
is considered one of the oldest symbols in human history.
In Sanskrit, "swastika" means "well-being" or "auspiciousness."
The Swastika is also closely tied to Buddhism, particularly in East Asia.
It is associated with the footsteps of the Buddha and symbolizes his teachings, the Dharma.
The Hakenkreuz symbol emerged as the emblem of the
National Socialist German Workers' Party (NSDAP), or the Nazi Party, in the early 1920s.
