By "that symbol" i think u meen the swastika.

The swastika is an extremely powerful symbol. The Nazis used it to represent thieir own twisted, murderous ideology, but for centuries it had positive meanings. The swastika is an ancient symbol that has been used for over 3,000 years. Artifacts such as pottery and coins from ancient Troy show that the swastika was a commonly used symbol as far back as 1000 BC, to represent life, sun, power, strength, and good luck.

The swastika is a symbol used by many people from ancient times. It was used by Indians as a lucky mark. Hitler, following the nazi notion of an "Aryan race", which included the Hindi speaking Indians, appropriated the swastika for the Nazi party, presumably as a symbol of good luck and "Aryan" values. Both directions (clockwise and counterclockwise) have been used in India, but now most Hindus use the varient that is the mirror image of that used by the Nazis.
