Italy; The swastika was found on archaic vases, rugs, fabrics and pottery. In Sicily, the swastika is associated with the “Trinity of Legs”, which became the Sicilian code of arms. The ‘Solomon’s Knots’ in Italy refer to swastikas with lines that do not have a beginning or an end, and are typify divine inscrutability(25). In northern Italy, the symbol was mainly present on funerary urns(26).
