Re: Is the Swastika evidence of a common origin?

The fyflot is Germanic in origin. It is the name of the rune stave that
the swastika comes from. If you trace the linguistic history of the Celtic
language, it can be traced to central Asia. So with this in mind, The
swastika would have been brought to North America during one of the several
migrations over the Bering Land Bridge. The commonality could be that the
swastika originated in the cental Asian Highlands and spread to India, the
orient, to the Germanic peoples, and the Celts. It is possible that it was
even spread by Celtic groups as they migrated west. There is a book that I
read in my college library that traced the linguistic history of the Celts.
It is interesting reading to anyone interested in learning about the
influence of the Celtic peoples on the world.
