Ancient Legendary Origins of the Samurai

Hiroshi Ōshima, the former Japanese Ambassador to Germany, believed that the noble castes in Japan, the Daimyo and the Samurai, were descended from gods of celestial origin, which was similar to the NAZI's own belief that "the Nordic race did not evolve, but came directly down from heaven to settle on the Atlantic continent."

A swastika (卐) crossed by two arrows, within a shield and surmounted by a royal crown on an orange background was used as the coat of arms of the Samurai Hasekura Tsunenaga in the early 17th century.
