Merge request[edit]

National Socialism, while considerably different than the Italian fascist movement that influenced it, is generally considered heavily fascist-influenced. I've requested that this page be merged with the fascist symbolism article since it contains more information and would allow a more extensive and broad overview of the subject. Many symbols tend to overlap within various fascist-influenced and fascist movements. At the moment, both entries contain a lot of duplicate information when it's really not necessary. :bloodofox: 10:02, 17 January 2006 (UTC)

Yes, I agree with you about containing more information; but, regretably, I have to oppose on the merge becuse they are not exactly the same thing, in my case. Kilo-Lima Vous pouvez parler 17:31, 6 March 2006 (UTC)

Iron Cross and Fasces[edit]

In what way is the Iron Cross a Nazi symbol? It's a German military award that's been around since 1813, 117 years before the Nazi party even existed. And did they really use the fasces? I could be wrong but this is the first I've heard of it Æscing (talk) 10:22, 4 February 2008 (UTC)

Because it has rightfully been associated with the nazi party since WWII. Anything else is an excuse to keep using hateful symbolism because one is a douchebag. 162.84.45.104 (talk) 05:59, 8 August 2011 (UTC)

Oh really now? How is the swastika a "hate symbol?" how is the Iron Cross a Nazi Symbol? the German Army still uses that symbol today in their units. By the way the term "nazi" is actually derogative because it was a term coined by people who were strongly against the nationalist socialist movement back in those days to call nationalist socialists. I find it quite funny when people contradicts themselves whenever they say its derogative when a couple of "Nazis" yell out racial slurs. Which those aren't really nationalist socialists. Becuase the core of nationalism socialism wasn't found on racism, and anti-semitism. but was found to try and change the current government at the time. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 192.145.240.80 (talk) 07:04, 14 August 2013 (UTC)

The Iron Cross isn't mentioned in the current version of this article, so that question is moot. As for the National Socialism vs. Nazism, I again direct you to Talk:Nazism.--Sus scrofa (talk) 10:15, 14 August 2013 (UTC)

Banned where?[edit]

These symbols are banned in I think the same countries in Europe where holocaust denial or approval will land you in prison. These include Germany and France but where else? It would be nice if this article listed the countries where display is illegal --LeedsKing (talk) 03:50, 10 December 2008 (UTC)
