The Hammer and Sickle of the Union
of Soviet Socialist Republics explains the Hakenkreuz - swastika of the National
Socialist German Workers' Party
The Hammer and Sickle of the former Union of Soviet Socialist Republics
illustrates how the National Socialist German Workers' Party came to use the
swastika as intertwined "S" shapes symbolizing "Socialism" for the monstrous
National Socialists in Germany. http://rexcurry.net/bookchapter4a1c.html
The Nazi-Sozi word for "swastika" was "Hakenkreuz" ("hooked cross" or "armed
Germany in the 1930's often used symbols for letters and words. Common
symbols under the National Socialist German Workers' Party often used the
"S" shape, including the side-by-side use in the "SS" Divison and the overlapping
use in the Hakenkreuz - swastika.
The hammer & sickle was a symbol of the socialist movement signifying
the alliance of workers and peasants. Placing the tools together
symbolised unity between agricultural and industrial workers. It also glorified
harsh manual labor dictated by the socialist government. http://rexcurry.net/ussr-socialist-swastika-cccp-sssr.html
The swastika was a symbol of the socialist movement signifying the alliance
of socialists within the National Socialist German Workers' Party.
In 1919, Adolf Hitler joined the German Workers' Party, a socialist group.
The group sought a new name that would attract socialists in other groups.
Other German socialist groups used terms like “National” and “Socialist”
in their titles, and the German Workers' Party adopted “National Socialist
German Workers’ Party.”
The swastika acquired the same meaning as the group's new name. Graphic

The intertwined letter "S" shapes represent "Socialists" unified, or
"Socialist Solidarity" and the victory of the National Socialist German Workers'
Party bringing socialists together in one large group.
Eventually, socialists in Germany joined with socialists in Russia as
allies to invade and partition Poland in 1939 under the notorious Molotov-Ribbentrop
Pact, that the Socialist Republics never renounced. Seven million died in
Poland. As a result of the War, Finland had its Karelian Peninsula torn away
by the Socialist Republics and 10 countries Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia,
Poland, Czechoslovakia, East Germany, Romania, Bulgaria, Hungary and Yugoslavia
suffered under the Socialist Republics for half a century.
In 1917, the hammer and sickle (Russian: серп и молот, "serp i molot"
(serpentine & mallet?) was the symbol of the Russian Soviet Federated
Socialist Republic (RSFSR), the largest and most populous of the fifteen
former republics of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, which became
the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics in December 1922. The Russian
SFSR became the modern day Russia after the collapse of the USSR, officially
dissolved on December 31, 1991.
Three common abbreviations (USSR, SSSR, CCCP) refer to a self-described
socialist entity that used the word "socialist" in its name, as did the NSDAP
(National Socialist German Workers' Party) which used the double "S" letters
of the Hakenkreuz - swastika. Russian socialists used symbolism and
the word "socialist" in their group's name, before the German socialists and
it served as an example.
CCCP is actually cyrillic and in Latin letters it would be SSSR and means:
Soyuz Sovetskikh Sotsialisticheskikh Respublik (soviet united socialistic
republic). Untransliterated it was CCCP, and transliterated it was SSSR.
CCCP led to the derisive joke that it signified the "coalition of collectivist
crusaders for the proletariat." It also inspired the old gag of asking
someone which "C" stood for "Communist." Of course, the abbreviation
did not refer to communism, it referred to socialism, as did the abbreviation
and symbol for the National Socialist German Workers' Party.
