Stupidity on parade
Ms. Duncombe had told the Daily Telegraph she did not know what the flag signified until the controversy erupted, but would not remove it because her four-month-old daughter liked its bright colours.Didn't know what the flag signified?

I realize that, before the Nazis appropriated it as their symbol in the early 1920's, the swastika was an ancient religious symbol used by Hindus and Buddhists, and was regarded in several cultures as a symbol of good luck. However, since World War II, it has been virtually solely the symbol of the Nazi regime. Even today, it is used primarily by neo-Nazi groups as their symbol and almost never used to symbolize anything else except fascism of the Nazi variety. I find it utterly amazing that anyone alive today could be "unaware" of its history and meaning, particulary since she was clearly flying the very same flag that the Nazis flew, with a black swastika emblazoned on a white circle on a red flag!
