Swastika before World War 2 was commonly used on variety of objects as a symbol of luck. It was fashionable to put swastika on cars, post cards, beer cans and whisky bottles, post cards and even passports of Soviet soldiers, among others. You may be surprised to learn that Carlsberg and Coca-Cola used swastika on their bottles. And until today, Swastika is still used in Japan as a symbol of luck. Before the war, the symbol was used internationally and was rather popular in Europe, USA ad Asia.
