Most Controversial Symbols

The Top Ten
1 Swastika

The Confederate flag, the rainbow flag...their controversy arr pieces of poop compared to the swatiska's controversy nothing will ever get more controversial than this.

The swastika used to be a peaceful symbol of the Hindu religion, but ever since Adolf Hitler got a hold of it, things got really ugly. Now it's used by modern day neo-nazis and anti semetics who hate the Jewish religion, and use it as a propaganda against the Jews.

It was a peaceful symbol, to represent good luck, but people soon believed it to be racist after the Nazis stole it and put it on their play.

This ancient symbol can be found in Native American artwork, Egyptian stone carvings & many other cultures way before Nazi party.

2 Confederate Flag

It was the flag used by the Confederate Army during the American Civil War. Although there are many documents that the war wasn't entirely based on slavery of the African Americans, it is still used by white supremesists against other races.

Since a couple weeks ago I was swimming at lake Martin and when I saw a boat with the confederate flag up I was very ticked off that I called them racists!

Come on guys. This is a part of American history, and people are taking down monuments because of this. Next thing you know, Mississippi’s flag will change completely

Very controversial.On one hand you have people saying it's racist and on the other hand you have people saying it represents southern heritage.-DarkBoi-X

3 Rainbow Flag

I'd rather have the Confederate flag flying over my house. I'm a Christian and I feel like this mocks our God's creation, the rainbow. But just because I hate this symbol doesn't mean I'm a homophobe.

This symbol is heresy. After the Flood, a rainbow was shown showing that Yahuah would not flood the earth again. It is a symbol of His covenant, His promise to the inhabitants of earth, a symbol of peace. Whenever we see rainbows, it is usually after a storm; usually a terrible storm. The rainbows that we see in the natural world are seen having 7 colors: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, violet, and indigo. The homosexual flag only has 6 colors, so it is indeed mocking His creation. There flag is the symbol of homofacism. There is a page somewhere (just search for it yourself) where it shows that many people, Christians who didn't want to be apart of celebrating homosexual marriage (which is not even real marriage when you think about it) got persecuted for not catering to them. One store owner said they would gladly do business with them as long as it was not for their "marriage" purposes. Why can't the homosexuals just start their own wedding businesses instead of trying to make ...more

I hate this symbol. Everybody claims it stands for "love" and "equality" but to me, as a kind Christian, it represents bigotry and intolerance and in my opinion is worse than the confederate flag.

Wow, no wonder it was very controversial. I could understand the fact that flag is hated but I shouldn't need to explain that to you.

4 Inverted Pentagram

I feel that the inverted cross implying Evil is a hypothetical case..Many I've had a conversation with blatantly dismiss this notion and deem it to be a huge misconception and that its connected with the history of St. Peter being executed upside down as he considered himself unworthy to be crucified in the same manner as Jesus Christ...Even thorough research led me to this conclusion.

It is a symbol for Satanism created by Aleister Crowley, an English cultist, representing the descent of spirit into matter. It is highly frowned upon by many religions, mainly Christianity.

The symbol of dark magic. Used to be a good symbol of the 5 senses but got a bad rep associated with evil magic and witchcraft.


5 Blood Drop Cross

Isn't the Vodafone logo the KKK emblem? I'm going to sue Vodafone.

The emblem was used by many klansmen of the KKK white supremists.

6 Jihadist Black Flag

Another religious symbol misused by propaganda: the black standard was flown by Muhammad by Islamic Tradition. The flag was used by terrorist members (ISIS) as a propaganda technique and recruitment strategy.

7 Hammer and Sickle

I am not offended by the hammer and sickle. But it does have a bad reputation. It was originally a symbol of equality. However, it is now a symbol of totalitarianism, as well as a reminder of the millions that were murdered under Stalin's regime.

In my opinion the soviet russians were worse than nazis. They killed way more people. But the Swastika is more controversial

Symbol for industrial workers and the peasants used as the emblem of the former Soviet Union and of international communism.

8 The Rising Sun

It's a beautiful flag full of beneficial symbolic meaning, but this flag was used by the Japanese Imperial Army back in World War 2, a bitter enemy of thy US back then.

I think that Japan still use this flag on their naval ships. And to think that flying the WWII Nazi German war flag will land you in prison!

9 Burning Cross

It represents kkk

10 Israel Flag

Controversial in Islamic countries

The Contenders
11 Illuminati

Originally, the Eye of Providence was supposed to represent the eye of God watching over humanity. It was then used to symbolize the Freemasons, and has become associated with the Illuminati. - SoongeBill

Good for making memes though

What the hell this is a meme

(X files theme plays)

12 Inverted Cross

This was supposed to portray Apostle Peter, who was crucified upside down. So you can say this was a beneficial symbol... back then. Recently, however, it is common for the upside-down cross to be used as a symbol of anti-Christianity, atheism, humanism, and the occult. Several black metal bands use an inverted cross to call attention to their supposed devotion to Satan.

This is so metal

13 North Korea Flag

Do I need to say anything

14 Atomic Whirl

Ok, that is TOTALLY one of my ultimate symbols right there. Read my profile to know what I'm talking about.

A symbol of Atheism. Frowned upon many religions.

15 Make America Great Again Sign
