Clara Bow Swastika Outfit Here's something from the distant past: Clara Bow, the most popular Hollywood actress at the end of the silent-film era, sports a swastika-decorated outfit in the 1920s! Was Bow a Nazi? Of course not! Before the rise of Naziism in the 1930s, swastikas were sometimes used as decorations because of their symmetrical geometry.

Swastika Name Controversy There is a Canadian town (located in northern Ontario) that bears the odd name of Swastika. Founded in 1904, it began as a mining community. No one is quite sure about the origin of the town's name. When Naziism was on the rise in the 1930s, the government of Ontario forced the 600 people of Swastika to accept Winston as a new name for the town. The people rebelled, tore down the Winston sign on the highway, and replaced it with another Swistika sign that carried the message: 'To hell with Hitler. We had the name first.'
