Most Controversial Symbols

The Top Ten

1 Swastika

After Hitler's use of it, I don't think the Swastika will ever be positive ever again. Do not forget the holocaust!

Little known that this is also the symbol for Jainism, a very peaceful religion.

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.

2 Confederate Flag

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!

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.

This flag can still be seen in some places in the southern United States

Yeah its controversial for sure.

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.

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.

What kind of sense does that make? I'll tell you: None. Not a single drop of sense.

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.

Absolutely a controversial symbol because there are so many people who support it and so many that are against it.

4 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. - Not_A_Weeaboo

5 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.

6 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.

That's's brutal

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 - Dvafan2

10 Israel Flag

Controversial in Islamic countries - Dvafan2

The Newcomers

? Tibetan Flag
? Antifa

The Contenders

11 Illuminati

(X files theme plays)

Good for making memes though

What the hell this is a meme

12 North Korea Flag

Do I need to say anything

13 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. - Not_A_Weeaboo

This is so metal - Skullkid755

14 Atomic Whirl

A symbol of Atheism. Frowned upon many religions.

Not that atheism is bad or anything, just saying that it's been a heated debate among many religious people.

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

I’m looking at you GodIsHell.

15 Leviathan Cross

Symbol of Satan. Apparently there are way more than the pentagram and the inverted cross. - Not_A_Weeaboo

I believe its satanism's symbol, am I mistaken. An emo girl on youtube said it so I trust it

16 Taiwanese Flag

Don't know how this is controversial. Whoever tells me gets a cookie! - Not_A_Weeaboo

I think its because China hates the existence of Taiwan, but hey what do I know. - codydoestuff

17 Make America Great Again Sign

Controversial by liberals and trump haters

18 Kosovo Flag

Controversial in Serbia - Dvafan2

19 Nazi Flag

It’s called the Swastika. - Not_A_Weeaboo

20 Yin/Yang
21 Pepe the Frog

Considered a hate symbol

22 Apartheid Flag of South Africa
23 ISIS Flag
24 Sigil of Baphomet

Basically the pentagram, but looks a bit more sinister. - Not_A_Weeaboo
