So, Erimar made a reply that made me think of this. I wanted to ask before. I found this question in my art critique manual. I was reading the chapter on meaning. It talks about how if you change certain things that you potentially change the meaning of you entire piece. The book asks "If the colors of the Nazi flag changed, to say hot pink and yellow...would it have the same impact?"

 Nah, not for me.  The colors aren't really an issue; it's the symbol.  In any case, a certain % of people (particularly men) wouldn't be able to tell the difference, due to color blindness.

I'll butt my nose in...I do think it changes the meaning. When I see the other colored flags of the swatzika , it is easier to see them as the meaning of peace, which it was initially until Hitler ruined that. With the red, white, and black I can only ever see hatred. I think the confederate flag changes too.

Nope, not for me. Change the color all you want, it's still a reminder of a dark past.
