Not a Nazi

Many places at the Carlsberg Breweries in Valby is adorned with swastikas, but the reason is not that the old brewer Carl Jacobsen was a national-socialist. Instead it was used as a symbol of prosperity and good fortune, and the Carlsberg version had four dots. It was even used on the labels of the beer bottles until WWII. So the swastika on Thor's wagon is just an old trademark.
