Believe me Lindax, I know all there is to know about Manji, Tetragammata, Swastika, Sauvastika, whatever you wish to call it.
For example, the word "Swastika" itself comes from sanskrit words "su" = "welfare" + "asti" = "he is", translating roughly to "one who is well", and it has been used as a good luck symbol for thousands of years by the hindus and buddhists...
Which is why I'm saddened that such a symbol was corrupted and "dragged through the mud" by the nazis.
And no, this is not "sour grapes". Why would it be? I've never been asked to change any of my maps because of this rule. The real point is that the rule/policy of not allowing the nazi flag on maps makes no sense whatsoever if it's not applied on all maps.
Think about it for a while: the point of the rule is to be considerate, or politically correct, or respect the holocaust survivors, or something like that... either way, any of those points is moot if the rule is not applied to all maps! Why worry about offending people with the nazi flag on one map, if at the same time there's another map that can potentially offend people with that same flag?
Personally, I don't really agree with this rule/policy. I think it's more disrespectful to try to cover up history and pretend things didn't happen. But I do understand the reasons for it... doesn't Germany still have a law that bans the nazi flag altogether? Perhaps CC doesn't want to lose it's German customers? Idk.
