Finnish Air Force - the logo introduced in 1918, the ancient symbol of the sun and good luck – was adopted as the insignia of the Finnish Air Force. The word “swastika” comes from the Sanskrit svastika - “su” meaning “good,” “asti” meaning “to be,” and “ka” as a suffix. The swastika literally means “to be good”.
Later, the Nazis ruined the swastika for everyone. This may not be the worst thing the Nazis did, but it was still pretty shitty. You are now smarter for stopping and reading my little history lesson.
