Footnotes

  • The swastika design is a Hindu symbol, derived from the Sanskrit word svaskika, meaning 'lucky' or 'auspicious object', and symbolizes well-being. Because it faces all four directions, it represents the creator god Brahma. The swastika is considered extremely holy by the Hindus and is a widely used decorative motif throughout India.
