T-Shirt Company Sells Rainbow-Swastika Design As ‘Symbol Of Love And Peace’

A T-shirt company is selling a design featuring clothing branded with swastikas in an effort to rebrand the Nazi imagery as a “symbol of love and peace.”

The shirts, designed by KA Design and available for purchase on Teespring.com, feature various rainbow-festooned swastika designs alongside the words “peace,” “zen” and “love.”

KA Designs explains on its website that “We celebrate freedom. We want to explore our boundaries, and push them forward. We love humanity, love and peace.” It posted a video on its Facebook page last month explaining that the swastika was an ancient Indian symbol of peace, love and good fortune:

The move to rebrand the swastika as a positive symbol was criticized by many on social media. However, it was praised by Andrew Anglin of the prominent neo-Nazi website The Daily Stormer.

The shirts and sweatshirts are currently available on Teespring for $20 to $27 dollars.
