Circles of Swastikas

“The Swastika is mistakenly thought to be an emblem of particularly Eastern or Aryan origin. It is found in the ideography of many different tribes, and children left to themselves with paper and pencil arrive at it readily when decorating squares. (Fylfot, gammadion, Encycl. Brit. 14th ed., VII, 260 a.)”
