Nazi Germany – We Named It First!

Everyone knows the Swastika, right?

It used to be a type of good luck charm, before the Nazis corrupted it.

In Ontario, Canada, there’s a small town called Swastika. In 1911, two brothers found gold at a nearby lake and named the mine after a good luck charm (swastika). When World War II broke out, the government changed the name to ‘Winston’ after Winston Churchill.

The people who lived in the town didn’t like the name change, so they removed the “Welcome to Winston” sign and replaced it with the original and another sign saying “To hell with Hitler, we thought of our name first”. The name Swastika stayed.

The new sign reads “Swastika, Population 545”.
