Swastika in a cornfield

Filed under: General,Weird by Orangemaster @ 11:17 am

In a nice, decent cornfield labyrinth in Prinsenbeek, Brabant, some nasty people made a swastika about 24 metres in diameter. Now that the world has discovered Google maps and the likes, we can see these things.

Amusingly enough, the author of this bit of news wrote that the swastika is “the wrong way round”, when in fact it is bang on, Nazi-style. Of course, if the author was trying to be clever (which I seriously doubt) and imply that following i.e. Hindu tradition the swastika is the wrong way round, then it wouldn’t be newsworthy. What was that fuss a while back about the Dutch not knowing enough about WWII?

The police were notified and the labyrinth people will try and change the shape somewhow.

And then, there’s other unfortunate swastikas, such as this oldie but goodie:
