If my history is right, the Nazi connection goes as follows. During the
Weimar era there were a lot of educated members of the German nation who
were interested in mysticism and proving connections between it and great
races. I believe one of these people dug the symbol up from the east. In its
original form I think it represents the sun as someone mentioned earlier.
The Nazis inverted it as an inversion of light. This has always been my
understanding of how the symbol came about, it may be wrong but I've asked
others and they seem to agree. People tend to get a little upset when they
see it in any form, I can remember a friend of mine throwing a fit during
"Kundun" as the sun logo appears on ceremonial garments when the Dalai Lama
is first presented. They believed it to be "unnecessary".
