Crosses and Swastikas
by Jiri Mruzek
While looking at the golden grid of the glyphic square from the
inscription, I began pondering the crosses and swastikas, which can be
this grid. The swastikas looked to me markantly unlike the nazi
the web then produced confirmation for this impression.
Unlike the swastikas we see here, the official swastika of the Third
Reich was built from seventeen
identical squares in a grid of 25 such squares.
inscription emphasizes the golden grid of a square - a field of Golden
Rectangles, and corresponding squares.
The swastikas, as well as the crosses you see here conform to the
Divine Proportion. I would not be surprised, if the dimensions of the
cross, on which Jesus was crucified, had just happened to conform to
the Divine Proportion for the sake of the divine presence, and it may
have looked much like the cross on
The cross on the right is also made out of Golden Rectangles. Crosses,
and swastikas are among the essential sacred symbols, but their actual
construction may vary between sacred, and ordinary.
The above swastikas from circa 1907 postcards seem to be
constructed by the olden Section.
are the only such old swastikas I found on the net. Similarly,
a Google search for the keywords ’swastika’ and ’golden section’ produces only one complete hit - this page. It seems unbelievable that
no one else has ever raised this important subject.

The text on the card back reads: GOOD
"The Swastika" is the oldest cross and emblem in the world. It forms a
combination of four "L’s" standing for Luck, Light, Love and Life. It
has been found in ancient Rome, excavations in Grecian cities, on
Buddhist idols, on Chinese coins dated 315 B.C., and our own
Indians use it as an amulet.
It is claimed that the Mound Builders and Cliff Dwellers of Mexico,
Central America consider "The Swastika" a charm to drive away evil and
bring good luck, long life and prosperity to the possessor.
The above swastika from probably the same series misses
its mark, as a good luck charm, no doubt. It certainly did not help the
nazis any. This is
the one swastika, which shall for ever be tarnished
as the symbol of Evil.
Just look at the 2/3 ratios on its sides.
2/3 = .666..
Need I say more? This is no divine life-giving proportion. This is no
sacred swastika. Were its proportions the main factor in
Hitler’s blessings for it as the official symbol of his state?
So, there is a difference between the 666 Swastika adopted by
Hitler, and the 1.618 swastika composed upon the Divine Proportion and
selected from the golden grid of a square. It was not in Hitler’s power
to undo the sacred fundamental nature of this symbol, just like it was
not in Stalin’s power to diminish the sacred nature of the 5-pointed
