While that is true, because of Hitler the meaning of the symbol has morphed into a representation of evil. No matter where people are in today's world, it doesn't take much brain power to realize and understand how offensive the symbol has become to so many. I don't know anywhere the symbol could be used today under its original significance and intent.
Even in Asia, if you saw someone walking around sporting a swastika on his clothing, wouldn't you at least be taken aback?
