KRIT Motor Car Company swastika inspired S-letters for "Socialism" under Nazis (National Socialist German Workers Party)?

Swastikas as S-letters for "socialism" under the Nazi Party or National Socialist German Workers Party

Krit Motor Car Company Detroit Swastika
The swastika was on American cars (e.g. the Krit Motor Car Company of Detroit) long before it was associated with German cars and the Volkswagen VW.

Krit might have inspired the use of the swastika by the National Socialist German Workers Party. Many Krit cars were exported to Europe and Australia. On December 29, 1914, a New York Times newspaper article states that the War was responsible for the bankruptcy of the Krit Motor Car Company, to wit: "Lack of business, due to the European war, is given as the cause of the failure."

That means that an American car company was the first to put swastikas on cars in Europe.

The Krit swastika had many similarities to the Hakenkreuze used later by German National Socialists. A photograph of the Krit logo is at this link.

The Krit swastika is very similar to a specific small membership pin used under Nazism.

An important difference between the Krit swastika and the Nazi membership pin's hakenkreuz is that the latter shows how the symbol was turned 45 degrees from the horizontal to represent S-letters for "sozialistische" (socialist) under the National Socialist German Workers Party (NSGWP or NSDAP), as shown in the growing body of work by the symbolist Dr. Rex Curry (author of "Swastika Secrets").

Although an ancient symbol, the swastika was used to represent crossed S-letters for "socialism" under the NSDAP. See the graphic image of the swastika symbolism at

Krit's swastika might have inspired the alphabetical symbolism under Nazism, in that Krit's swastika examines alphabetical symbolism with the four letters K-R-I-T spaced at the four sides of the flat swastika. Adolf Hitler took the same idea another step.

The swastika as alphabetic symbolism was not new.

Another photograph of the Krit swastika shows it with eagle wings. http//

The Volkswagen VW logo and the Audi logo expose the swastika as intertwined "S" shapes symbolizing "Socialism" for the monstrous National Socialist German Workers' Party, and provide more support for Dr. Curry's work.

The following is an additional graphic examples of the symbolism of the swastika 

Before the VW emblem was created, the organization that controlled volkswagen was the Deutsche Arbeitsfront (DAF or German Labor Front) and its logo used a swastika encircled by a cogwheel.

Similar alphabetical symbolism was used under the NSDAP for the "SS" division, the SA, the NSV, et cetera.

The Trabant car also provides support.

The Krit company existed from July 1909 to 1915. The Krit car was designed by Kenneth Crittenden, who had worked at Ford and Regal.

Although the swastika had a history as a generic "good luck" symbol, that did not hold true for the Krit badge, nor for the badge of the National Socialist German Workers Party. However, the Volkswagen VW badge, based on the swastika philosophically and stylistically, lives on.

New discoveries show that American soldiers used the swastika as their symbol early in World War I, and up to 1941, against Germany. The symbol was used by Americans in the French Escadrille Lafayette, by the 45th Infantry Divison, and on Boeing P-12 planes.

Dr. Curry has previously shown how socialists in the USA originated the modern swastika as overlapping "S" letters for "Socialists" joining together in a utopian "Socialist Society" (decades later, it was used by the National Socialist German Workers Party). During the time when American soldiers adopted the swastika, the symbol was associated in the USA with the growing popularity of "military socialism," a dogma touted by Edward Bellamy, the American author of the international bestseller "Looking Backward," (1887) known as the bible of National Socialism. Edward Bellamy was cousin to Francis Bellamy, author of the Pledge of Allegiance, the origin of the stiff-armed salute adopted later by the NSGWP.

The symbol was also famous in the USA as alphabetical symbolism for socialism in the Theosophical Society (TS), from 1875.

In 1888, the Theosophical Society teamed up with the Bellamy Nationalist movement for military socialism.  The "Bellamy swastika" and the "Bellamy salute" spread.
