>I remember reading that a clock wire swastika (opposite to that used by
>nazi's) was said to have a luck charm effect (an asian thing),
The true swatika appears in a number of cultures as an emblem for the sun,
according to some stories it was reversed by the Nazis in an attempt to tap
the dark powers. Supposedly this lead to the downfall of the Reich.
Anyway thats what the stories say.
