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.

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
