My MIL has a quilt her great great grandmother made that has the swastika symbol all over it. The quilt is over two hundred years old, what was the meaning of this symbol to her when she made it, she was English.
I know the symbol is very ancient and was used a lot in India, Russia and China. I thought it meant luck.
I'm not familiar with the significance of the symbol in Great Britain.

I believe it was meant for unity and peace. I learned from Girl's State that in WW1 our soldiers had a swastika on there shoulder and instead of placing our hand over our heart for the pledge, we held out our right arm with palm up to honor the flag. The Nazi's would salute palm down.

It was used a symbol of luck and is passed from Indian culture throughout the world...We have a quilt that was given to us when we got married which has the swastika on it and we never found it to be offensive however some of our friends have and are happy to tell us that it is bad.
