Swastika Banner Flown Over NYC Causes Stir

The International Raelian Movement, a group that “tries annually to remind people that before Adolf Hitler’s rise, the swastika was an ancient symbol of well-being to Hindus and Buddhists”

The group also believes that “human beings were created by extraterrestrials. Many beachgoers, whether invented by ET, or not, were not amused at the banner. 

It’s also not the first time the group has used this particular stunt.

Some beachgoers were appalled and officials fielded complaints after a plane toted the banner Saturday. The banner featured swastikas, a peace sign, a Star of David and a “pro-swastika” message.
