I am not really so sure about this. The Nazi Swastika is seems to be rendered at an angle of 45 degrees, in the profile of a diamond rather than a square. I seem to have heard that the original meaning was more along the lines of "Many Blessings" rather than "Good Luck," as it were the blessing of one's Creator likened to a lucky roll of dice or an auspicious hand of playing cards dealt from a well-shuffled deck. Perhaps the Nazis were so convicted in their own consciences of their evil deeds and subconsciously felt themselves so unworthy of their Creator's blessings that they translated the meaning of the symbol to "Good Luck" when they stole it. Now I am all but certain there is a Southwest Native American connection to this symbol that is being glossed over or hidden, as well as another version of National Socialism in force in the Four Corners states of Utah, Colorado, New Mexico, and Arizona, that seems to be symbolized by a version of the Swastika in the profile of an upright square rather than a diamond.
