    It's a pentangle, a five-pointed star. It's used in witchcraft. Lon Chaney Jr. and Universal Studios maintain that's the mark of The Wolf Man.

It is a symbol that has been permanently taken out of commission, IMHO. You will see it all over the place in Japan, India, etc though.
    Indeed, there is a house in my neighborhood with a brick swastika on the chimney. Built well before WW2.

    What?! No! That bites. I agree with you, I really hope they bring it back. Or that they have the Voodoo Priestess who lived in that house (I was told that was the backstory?) relocate to another apartment in New Orleans Square and decorate her new balcony similarly...

    People often mistake the swastika for what it isn't. The Nazi one was canted at a 45* angle... the right-aligned one is a sign of peace ironically.

    That's a common belief, but if you look at Nazi propaganda and uniforms you will see a number of examples where the swastika is oriented straight, and not at 45 degrees (example here: http://www.snyderstreasures.com/eBay...9/GPB9201F.JPG).

    Also, the Nazis didn't "flip" the symbol - they always used the right facing one, but so did a lot of others. The Buddhist swastika always faces left, but the Hindu one and the ancient Roman ones can go right OR left. And the right facing swastika - the one the Nazis used - shows up in good luck pins, logos and all over the place in pop culture, pre-WWII buildings, and Indigenous designs. Here's an example of an old Navajo rug which uses both orientations. http://www.mattkuhncollection.com/grnadoswastika.jpg

    And as a contemporary symbol of hatred that stands, too.

    Thank you for saving an utterly moronic thread by quoting one of the best films ever made.

    Re: Pentagram On Splash Mountain?

    So, are you all too irrational to see that it's a makers mark on the jug? It's in blue ink that is stamped on all the jugs from that manufacturer. It's under the glaze. Why do you insist on making up ridiculous explanations and blaming cast members for devil worshipping? It probably was placed carefully by an imagineer not to face the guests line of sight originally, but in the 25 years the ride has been opened, it's gotten rotated. Once again, this group is making something of nothing.

    Re: Pentagram On Splash Mountain?

    If you take a second and do your homework before going and accusing the cast members of being satanic devil worshipers... you would have found that the jug is an antique almost 100 years old. Here is the story:

    Star Stoneware...the company was in business in Crooksville, Ohio, from 1892-1945. The jug design is called a beehive top...easy to see. Many of the jugs are funnel style.
