Strange - but for once you are correct. The Finnish one did as well. We cant use the 33-45 German flag because it's illegal in FGR and Austria.

The problem with putting the swastika on books or models, is that it immediately makes them illegal in Germany. So its not political correctness its about not shutting yourself out of a market due to their laws.

Yes there is a line between covering something up, and pretending it didn't happen. But my understanding is that the German law is to cover specific symbols that had the potential to act as rallying points for reformed Nazi groups. Of course all they have done is create variants that aren't covered in the law.

Don't know if he is (sorry, Phil).  Tongue

Fondly recalling my visit to the Carlsberg brewery in Denmark in the 70's, there were four stone elephants with swastikas at the main gate which pre-date the Nazi party and have the arms pointing in the same direction. I've always harboured a certain yearning to go back there (they had free samples at the end of the tour!  drooling ) but, alas, I've just read that the original brewery closed in 2008.  Cry

It occurs in both forms from the earliest times, and pretty well world wide, from Japan and India to Western Europe and Ancient Greece and Rome, also (I think) Norse and Celtic art.

Where are elephants pink?

I didn't wish to get too close to investigate in case I was trampled by a very indignant pachyderm.


p.s. I knew you meant 'were' - answer is unfortunately 'no,' because I was under age at the time and so compelled to behave myself (and it was 1969 and not the seventies as first recalled).  Wink
