    Good luck finding the origins of the brush! Please do let us know when you do. If it's from before 1920, when the nazi party adopted it as it's symbol, it's one of the "good ones."

    Here's a pretty short, but well coverd history of the symbol.

    Yes! As quoted, despite its origins, the swastika has become so widely associated with Nazi Germany that contemporary uses frequently incite controversy.
    Seems it shall never be the same, even though earlier examples' meanings are forgotten! Sad!
    Look at the Movember auctions in the BST!

    It was when the Freikorps fought against Spartacists to save their country
    He kept it as a symbol for his party although for the army make it turn
    His historians told him Not to do it because was bad luck sign,he didn't want to hear them.
    Swastika was once in a Coca-Cola advertise although you can found it in the ancient Parthenon or in Agia-Sofia temple
    In the ancient Greece was a very common symbol,you can see it everywhere !

    Red,white and black were the colours of
    the flag of the old German Empire
    Also a copy from the Greeks,were the colours of King Leonidas shield and latter the colours of our revolution flags at 1821.

    I have two volumes of Kipling's "Jungle Books" that have the swastika. They are from about 1890.

    In my honest opinion i think that the swastika in this brush has nothing to do with the nazis but it is just an old symbol. Why would anyone want to get a brush with a symbol from any political party?

    Howevers what it comes to swastika in general that is just an old symbol meaning good luck. Too bad nazis spoiled it.
    Swastika was also a symbol of our defence forces long before the nazis adopted it. Howevers blue swastika is still used by our Air Force even today. Not in planes but in flags and there's also swastika in several military medals.

    Here's a pic of the flag of Air Combat Academy. Also all air fleets use almost a same kind of flag.

    During WWll Germany was very proud of it's Fuhrer and many items were produced for public sale with the swastika and likenesses of Hitler on it. So you have to look at the item and when it was produced and why it was produced.
