The Jolly Roger is of course heavily associated with Pirates, with the combination of a white skull and crossbones on a black background used to indicate that the ship approaching you was full of men who wanted to steal your doubloons, drink your rum, and caress you ever so gently with their shiny hooked hands. The symbol of the three hares depicts three hares chasing each other in a circle, with each one having two ears, but with the three hares arranged so that only three individual ears need to be shown. Now hold on a minute, surely we’re stretching the limits of the word “ancient” here aren’t we? The Pinecone symbol is associated with many of Earth’s oldest and supposedly most enlightened civilizations, as pinecones themselves are meant to represent the Third Eye and the human Pineal Gland. Since its appropriation by a certain group of zero-chill Germans in the 20th Century, the Swastika has come to represent evil, death, intolerance and bigotry.
