Abstract: 

Swastika is an ancient symbol that has appeared in many cultures around the world, but its origin is still obscure. Some believes that it is s sign of the Indo-Europe people, therefore chosen by Hitler as an anti-Sami symbol during WWII. Not only this sacred sign has not an anti-Sami symbol but also not a sign exclusive to the Indo-Europe culture. This sign as we will show in this article is a heavenly sign sacred to all cultures of the northern hemisphere before the migration to Indo-Europe people. Even used in parts of the ancient world which had no contacts with other parts of the worlds. In this article we will introduce the oldest Swastikas and will study its origins.
