The swastika (as a character 卐 or 卍)
is a geometrical figure and an ancient religious icon
in the cultures of Eurasia,
used as a symbol of divinity and spirituality in Indian religions.
In the Western world, it was a symbol of auspiciousness and good luck
until the 1930s, when it became a feature of Nazi symbolism
as an emblem of Aryan race identity and,
as a result, was stigmatized by association with ideas of racism and antisemitism
In Asia, the swastika symbol first appears in the archaeological record around
3000 BCE in the Indus Valley Civilization
In Christianity, the swastika is used as a hooked version of the Christian Cross,
the symbol of Christ's victory over death
The swastika is a Navajo symbol for good luck, also translated to "whirling log."
The symbol was used on state road signs in Arizona

For anyone who might be interested, you can see the blanket in question at 1:53 into the video on this website:
And if you scroll down a bit, there's also some discussion of it along the lines of ACT 1's Wikipedia reference above.
