The Swastika: An Ancient White People’s Symbol

by James Harting

THE SWASTIKA (or Aryan Cross) is widely recognized as the symbol of National Socialism. It has been used by the NS movement since its inception in Germany nearly 100 years ago. For that reason, some people mistakenly believe that it is only a German insignia. But in fact, the Swastika has been a symbol used by White people across the world for many thousands of years.

Just recently, archaeologists discovered a pottery fragment bearing a Swastika in present day Bulgaria. It is dated to some 7,000 years ago. Nor is that the oldest Swastika ever found: a figure of a 10,000 to 12,000-year-old bird carved in ivory that is also inscribed with a Swastika was discovered in the Ukraine.

Far from being a “hate symbol,” as it is called by anti-White agitators, historically the Swastika has represented the positive concepts of well-being, creativity, fertility, good fortune, justice, dynamism, and rebirth. And beyond that, it is today used as a racial emblem that is the common property of White people everywhere.

For a fascinating visual history of the Swastika across the ages, watch this short video.

A pottery fragment with the image of a swastika, dating to 7,000 years ago, was discovered in north-western Bulgaria.

The swastika-decorated clay pottery fragment was found by archaeologists during excavations of a ritual pit around the village of Altimir near the town of Vratsa.

The ancient find dates back to before the Copper Age and was used prominently by many civilizations for many millennia.

If you want to see just how deeply-rooted the swastika pattern is in Europe, a good place to start is Kiev where the National Museum of the History of Ukraine has a small ivory figurine of a female bird. Made from the tusk of a mammoth, it was found in 1908 at the Paleolithic settlement of Mezin near the Russian border. On the torso of the bird is engraved an intricate pattern of joined up swastikas. It’s the oldest identified swastika pattern in the world and has been radio carbon-dated to an astonishing 15,000 years ago.

Among the earliest cultures utilizing the swastika are the Old European neolithic Danube Valley Civilization, Vinca culture, Cucuteni-Trypillian culture, and the Varna Civilization — all in Europe, which proves that the Swastika is a definite European sign moving east into the Indus Valley civilization, where it was also prominent. It was brought by migrating tribes to India, where it was revered in the religious and cultural life of the Indo-Aryans.

In Europe, where the Swastika appears more frequently than in any other continent, it was often interpreted as a solar symbol. Swastika shapes have been found on numerous artifacts from Iron Age Europe (Greco-Roman, Illyrian, Etruscan, Baltic, Celtic, Germanic, Slavic, and Georgian).

The symbol has been found on vessels in the ancient city of Troy, where the evidence shows that it served as a symbol of fertility and life. Its similar use can be found in trench graves in Mycanae, Greece; on Athenian vases; and even decorating the garments of Aphrodite, the Greek goddess of love. Also the Greek Parthenon had this symbol as a Greek design just like other designs. In Europe, such symbols can be found in Roman catacombs, in churches, on plaza stones, and graves.

The symbol was also found in Bulgaria during the times of the Roman Empire on a fibula, and during the Middle Ages as a cross with bent arms. Swastikas in Bulgaria can be seen in one of the oldest churches in the Black Sea town of Nessebar and at the “Saint Sofia” church.

Swastikas can also be found all over the Americas and Europe on buildings from the 19th and early 20th centuries, a time when a revival of classical architectural styles took place. The US Department of Agriculture building in Washington, DC, for example, is covered with hundreds upon hundreds of Greek style swastikas. Here is another set of examples — a large number of swastikas found in the city of St. Petersburg, Russia: http://www.nork.ru/burg/swastika.html

      Many tall light-haired mummies of Europoid racial type, some dating back 4000 years, and therefore antedating the Aryan invasion of India, have been found by archaeologists in Western China. So, my question to you “Anjali” is this: Since ancient White peoples were, from at least 2000 BCE living as far east into Asia as Western China, then how can you be so sure that the ancient Aryans in India were not White? After all, if Whites 4000 years ago could reach the borders of ancient China then what could have stopped them reaching and settling North India? Research the Tarim mummies before assuming Whites were, until Columbus, always entirely confined to Europe.

    Arians made India have a history, when the brown ppl arrived and began to mix, India ceased to exist.
    Now it is happening in Europe. we need more white people, the rest does not have the same capacity, unfortunately this is the truth and everyone knows it

      Anjali says: 1.3 billion Indians are not white at all…whites are not welcome in our country you ever come to india you will more than likely get lit on fire just letting you know.Indians hate white people.

      Now there is a hater, my White kinsmen!

      We Whites want our own exclusive living space just as racially loyal Anjali wants to keep us out of his to keep his nation Brown. White America, should realize how hated, how threatened they are by welcoming hateful non-Whites like Anjali — who can’t make a White baby — into their midst. Anjali doesn’t need Whites in India and we don’t need his kin in our land, fouling our fragile gene pool. Whites and Browns can agree on this much if they are racial nationalists.

      We can celebrate or embrace the swastika — the ancient Aryan good luck sun sign — if we choose. The symbol “represents the positive concepts of well-being, creativity, fertility, good fortune, justice, dynamism, and rebirth,” just as Mr. Harting rightfully states. However, Dr. William Pierce chose the less despised, less stigmatized, pre-Christian European Life Rune as the symbol of the National Alliance.

      Anjali, since you claim to be a woman, you would do well to remember that if the British rulers in India had not abolished the abominable Hindu practice of Sati/Suttee, it is you who could have been set on fire upon a funeral pyre, if your husband were to die before you. For that you should grateful to the British! “Be it so. This burning of widows is your custom; prepare the funeral pile. But my nation has also a custom. When men burn women alive we hang them, and confiscate all their property. My carpenters shall therefore erect gibbets on which to hang all concerned when the widow is consumed. Let us all act according to national customs.” – Sir Charles Napier

      Anjali, the oldest skulls found in the Americas were Caucasian, not “Native” American Indian. Research Kinnewick Man, Penon Woman, Spirit Cave Mummy, the Solutrean hypothesis, and the genetic results for the Florida Bog People. Also, according to Mayan, Aztec, and Inca pre-Columbus legends, the physical desciptions given of their civilizing gods Quetzalcoatl/Kulkulkan and Viracocha, are those of Caucasoids, such as bearded faces with light skin and eyes. Pure blooded Amer-Indians allegedly couldn’t grow beards, nor were they light skinned and blue eyed, so clearly their ancestors had encountered Whites peoples long before Columbus and the conquistadors.

    Archaeology and genetics have shown that ancient Europoid peoples were living in parts of Asia long before the words “Asian” and “Asia” were first used by ancient Greek geographers like Hecataeus of Miletus. By your use of “Aryan = Asian”, are you trying to imply that the original Aryans were therefore not White? If so, then you need to understand, like the above commenter “Anjali”, that in ancient times, not all the inhabitants of the Asian continent were non-White like they are today. For instance, the original inhabitants of Central Asia were Aryan and Tocharian speaking Europoids like those known to history as Massagetae, Saka, Yue-Zhi, Wusun, White Hephthalites, and not the much later Turkic speaking Mongoloids, such as the Uzbeks, Kazakhs, Kirghiz, Uighurs, and Turkmens who inhabit Central Asia today.

      Namaste Anjali. Actually, there are two types of “Caucasians”, white ones, and brown ones. You say Whites have nothing to do with Asia, then please explain how Chinese and Uighur archaeologists have excavated the mummified remains of many ancient Whites in China’s western province of Xinjiang? Anybody can see the ancient White mummies on display in the Urumchi museum there, and books and documentaries have been made about them. Also, ancient Chinese history has many accounts and descriptions of light skinned peoples with light hair and eyes living near China. In the Altai mountains, on the border between Siberia and Mongolia, the frozen remains of ancient Caucasoid Scythians, with blond and red hair intact, have been found at the Pazyryk and Ukok burial sites. There is much evidence Anjali, that ancient White peoples lived in Asia. Even today, many Kalash people of northern Pakistan still have White children with light hair and eyes. Please type in blond Kalash pics on Google to see them. Good day to you my dear.

      Anjali, by searching for pics of blond Kalash on either Google or Bing, you’ll see many with White skin who look Swedish. Do it, you won’t be disappointed with the results! Ancient White peoples entered India and settled many times, starting with the Aryans, and followed later by Greeks, Kushans (Yue-Zhi), and Scythians. Even the Jats of India today have European DNA inherited from the “Indo-Scythian” (Shaka) and Hephthalite (Huna) invaders of India. I hope you find this information helpful, and will enjoy researching more about ancient White peoples in the “Asian” continent. Oh, and I further hope you enjoyed the £279 million aid money that Britain gave India in 2014. We Whites sure are are very generous germbags! Some of that money you could use to go to Urumchi museum in China to see the blond Tarim mummies, or a holiday to Uganda to visit the grave of Idi Amin, who loved Indians as much as Gandhi loved Blacks. Have a nice day Anjali.

    correction the word caucasian was changed in 1785 by christoph meiner. all European languages are very recent and not ancient at all. language linguistics literature grammar all was invented in India not europe. Vedic Sanskrit was invented by a indian Nasadiya sukta. that is not a white name.surgery was invented by Shushruta in 600bce that is also not a white name doesnt sound like joakim,koslov,smith,perrson,svensonn or johann or any (……berg) name to me.

    More information about the Swastika is coming in dreams and studies. The counterclockwise Swastika represents a negative, yet learning experience. The clockwise Swastika is positive. The symbol is composed of four “Builder” glyphs — “L”-shaped right-angled squares, like those used by craftsmen. The Swastika, as a Builder from each direction, symbolizes collective mankind as co-creators of the physical world, also known as the Demiurge. We have been in a cycle of time experiencing the negative-learning, as unconscious co-creators. Eventually, we will learn to become conscious co-creators, symbolized by Lion King, and Royal Power.
