Swastika is probably the best name for a town...said nobody ever.

Named after a train station built in 1908 (well before Nazi Germany), Swastika has somehow resisted changing to reflect the times. Unlike Ontario's Town of Berlin (which later became Kitchener during WW1), Swastika's name has no doubt lead to many awkward interactions with alarmed out-of-towners.
