    Many things we see or use today had their origin in Nazi Germany or at least they were reinvented there. It won't be long until you see a documentary "The Nazi legacy" or something of that sort in the History Channel.

    The same reason that Hitler took the ancient Indian symbol for life and vitality (the swastika) and turned it into his infamous symbol of hatred and facism. Circles are a symbol, they can mean different things in different cultures. Berliners eventually they named a street and a school after him posthumously. Hitler still had to congratulate Owens at 1936 Olympic Games in Berlin, Germany on his 4 GOLD medals and the fact that Owens was hailed a hero by Hitler's own people...

    Because a broken watch is right twice a day. Hitler also made possible the Autobahn and many hospitals. He did a lot of bad, but he did some good as well

    You do know when Hitler first took office he was seen as a progresive, someone who was going to pull Germany out of their deep economic slumber caused by WWI and bring back the mighty German Economy...ummmmmm!

    Hitler had originally designed it using triangles, but went with rings when it looked too Jewish.
