One of the guys who works at a shop near my house rides this motorbike. I’ve been wondering why the hell he has a Nazi flag on the back of his bike ever since the first time I saw it. I understand that the symbol can be used in the context of religion, but this here flag is undoubtedly a Nazi Germany flag. There actually is a etymological connection between the flag and Thai culture with the Sanskrit word “svasti” being the root word of both “swastika” and “sa-wat” which is a Thai greeting. Nonetheless, it remains completely bizarre.
