Isnt it obvious? The main characters may look like hedgehogs, but are in fact little demons.

I made the pentagram. Annoyed I don't see any harm done by having a flag with such a symbol. People can wear/believe in/etc whatever they want to (not that I am a follower of some satanic cult Big Grin). Besides such symbols are often seen in the metal-culture. And it'll be racism to neglect their needs. Savvy? Wink Smiley If you want a game approved by the The World Community for Christian Meditation (or something like that), better play Minesweeper. Oh, wait. There is a lot of violence too (explosions and a portrait of a dead yellow dude). So better stick to Solitaire (although this might be considered a sin too for Solitaire might be used in gambling Big Grin).

There's a lot more behind pentagrams than just some kind of satan cult. Look it up on Wikipedia or any other encyclopedia. Wink Smiley

It can be meant in a negative way or to protect and simply mean "health" etc.

Same problem with the swastika.
E.g. in Asia it symbolizes luck afaik, but since some particular historical events most people only think about Nazis when they see it.

I know there are other meanings. It's just that xAlex007x didn't have in mind these other meanings. Big Grin Otherwise I don't see why someone would complain about a symbol that means health. Big Grin

Err ... official setup/package includes swastika(s)? Would be new to be - if so, tell me, as in that case we'd have to remove it to not violate (silly but still existing) laws in Germany. Or was it just a random example? Due to that it's not exactly the same thing compared to pentagrams etc.

Clearly it was just an example of the way symbols can be interpreted differently by different people.

What pentagram are we talking about btw?

There is a flag with a pentagram on it. Along with some other 'disturbing' symbols in the set of flags.

It was just an example how people can be offended extremly by symbols that aren't any special (or even of positive meaning) to other people.

HEY! I like the penthagram, and it's my team flag too! Annoyed

If you don't know, te pentagram is a sign of protection AGAINST evil, not some sort of satan cult, it's totally the oposite. Wink Smiley Some people use it like a Devil's sign, as the inverted cross, (which end to be a sign of humility to JesusChrist) Smile
