I know what swastica represent guys, as well what cross represented before Christ.

Both symbols have new meaning now in this era. You might wear them in the East as you say but in that case I would advice avoiding visiting Europe and Israel.

It also shows that you don't understand the asian use of the swastika because the asian swastika is canted in the opposite direction and at a 45 degree angle from the Nazi party one. The traditional Sanskrit meaning roughly translates to: "lucky object" or something like that.

While I can understand how people can mix them up, it also shows that a serious lack of education exists in western culture as pertains to foreign symbolism.

I do understand the meaning, but trying to explain that to the Europeans who suffer under Nazi's is no easy job.

I mean, last year mayor of town in Europe removed all Christmas stars from the city ( it was 23'rd of December ) becasue they reminded citizens of communism. You get the idea.

Wait, the symbol of the cross was in use before Christianity in the same general area of the birthplace of that religion?


Someone tell me a bit about it, if you could, please.

Honestly I doubt it.
( Disclaimer I am an atheist)

The cross or some sort of two lines or more meeting each other have always been a religious symbol for many many religion around the globe, include minor local ones. A meet between life and death, man and woman (yeah, sex), day and night, etc... Christain probably was just absorbing the "cross is sacred symbol" from one of the smaller religions during that timeframe as it spread.

In fact the crucified cross in the Old Testtament was actually a T-shaped if I remember correctly. Need to be verified through

I'm...not sure what you're doubting? Crucifixion as a method of execution is a very well documented phenomenon across many cultures, and it was most definitely a thing in 1st century Rome, at the beginning of the Christian movement.

If you're just doubting that's where the symbol came from, then alright, but Jesus himself refers to the cross as a symbol of sin and shame in the Bible, so that's definitely what's taught in Christian tradition. Whether there were other factors that led to the adoption of the symbol is far beyond me to judge though.
