god damn it, don't you think I have a right to speak my mind here?
And I don't care who uses this sign now. I have it in my avi whether anyone likes it or not.
Well, I didn't even knew this thing was used by the Bundeswehr and if it were a swastika on He-Man's chest I would just laugh out loud

So: I'm pretty German and I don't see why I should be offended by He-Man in any way. He's cool :P

Hey, isn't that one of the Nazi's crosses on He-man's shirt? blink.gif
No, it's not. It a sign you can see very comonly on medieval stuff. Even if the Nazis would be using it, I really, really don't see the link between them anyways.

It's Malthesian Cross or something like that, I think it's a sign from crusaders, but it was also used as nazi insignia...

It's the Maltese Cross

It's a very famous symbol, used in many contexts, including the Germans during their empire days. As such, it was used by the Nazis in order to inspire patriotic zeal from the German people.

Well it might derive from Maltese cross, buit to me it looks more like Iron cross, first awarded on 10 March 1813:

On the above link you can see the developement of this cross and how it is connected with Nazies.
