|Symbols are important to
cultures in all periods of history. The symbols an era relates
to, helps us understand their beliefs and what was important to
them. Below are some symbols prevalent in WWII and
their associated meanings.
Symbols were rendered with XARA. The Swastika and Cross Pattée utilized P22's font "Koch Signs."

|NOTE: In building this site, I thought about many things - such as what spelling standard I should use in
referring to World War II, and what keyword spelling people might use
in a search engine to find this page. I found it interesting to
note the following numbers of page listings for the various ways one
might type World War II into a search engine.
6,050,000 for world war two
5,860,000 for world war 2
134,000,000 for world war II (using the capital i for the 2)

Note that capitalization, punctuation and spacing changes introduced no differences. So if you are looking for information on a particular subject, remember to use all variations of the wrods related to the subject. The pages a search engine will give you to look at will vary with each method. Also in general, I have referred to World War II on these pages using WWII (using the capital i for the 2).
