Non Nazi swastikas

Legal disclaimer
This image of a swastika resembles the swastika that was used by the National Socialist (NSDAP/Nazi) government of Germany or an organization closely associated to it, or another party which has been banned by the Federal Constitutional Court of Germany.

The use of insignia similar to organizations that have been banned in Germany may also be illegal in Austria, Hungary, Poland, Czech Republic, France, Brazil, Russia and other countries, depending on context. In Germany, the applicable law is paragraph 86a of the criminal code (StGB), in Poland – Art. 256 of the criminal code (Dz.U. 1997 nr 88 poz. 553). This ban, however, does not apply to swastikas that are of a religious nature, including ones used by Jainism, Hinduism, and Buddhism.
