How dare you...

@Brynda: You're a damn fool. https://simple.wikipedia.org/wiki/Swastika. Notice the word "PEACEFUL" in the title.

I dont think my school would allow this font...

I created this alphabet to accentuate the different forms of Swastikas outside of the typically rendered Nazi Swastika, which could not be any further from the true meaning of a Swastika. I did so to show people how many Swastikas there are out there, and how diverse they can be, and to seek further information about them.

There is such a horrible stigma surrounding Swastikas, and I sought to help change that with this script, hence the "(PEACEFUL)" in the title.

The Swastika is a symbol of peace and harmony in almost every single culture in human history at one point or another. It can also be used as a religious cross in various sects of Christianity. The Nazi Swastika is used in vain against all prior uses of it and only serves to represent the Nazi-culture existing in this world and to describe their terrible hate speech and how extensively ignorant they are and that they should be ignored, since they don't even understand their symbol means something polarly opposite to what it is intended in their party.

This list sadly does not include every type of swastika, but I have done my best and I am working to improve and add new Swastikas in place of recurring ones.

Nicely done. I love your variation; and, I agree, about it being stigmatic. Most people don't even bother to research the true meaning of this symbol. In every ancient culture it represented the Sun, and still does. I included them in my font Dehuti (not a fontstruction), which, if you are curious, is in the Tibetan section of Unicode. Also, the Nazis fully understood its meaning, and turned it on its side to attempt to alter its power to suite their agenda. For them it represents the Black Sun, as all things have their polar opposites—this, by the way, could represent the newly discovered dwarf star/planet that orbits our system, as the majority of systems are, in fact, binary. Another great example is the cross of Christianity, which is actually the druid cross. If Christians wanted a symbol that truly represented Christ, it would be and X.

It's difficult to look past 'recent' misuse of this symbol. I learned that it's an ancient symbol of eternal welcome and (spiritual) well-being and represents the sun, love, care and (circular) infinity. Namaste
