The above looks like it was modelled pretty closely on the Escorial, the palace of Philip II.

I have a question to some of the users around and I hope the answers won't get off topic.
So this is the case, in the south coast of Europe there are tremendous mosaics, they are all of course extremely detailed with lots of colors and motifs that are nature inspired from wild cats and lions to orange and tangerine trees and ofcourse grapes, a lot of it.
All of these are extremely old, some are older than 2000 years.
The question is this one: what do you think when some people take a very old symbol to use it in political case, more importantly do you approve of people being allowed to vulgarize other people's history? Because trust me all these mosaics look stunning and unfortunately some of the symbols were taken and extremely vulgarized by some others.
Do you think that there should be some ways to prevent things like that? Because to be honest even I get scared from one of those symbols, precisely.

Such a shame that no one had a thought to share about such an important topic. I should have posted some pictures of the striking mosaics, but I'm afraid some other will take them and cover their public squares with them and maybe try to sell them as their own, and maybe use them in bad connotation. Therefore, no pictures.

You mean like what the Nazis did to the swastika? I don't approve but there's not much you can do.

Exactly. Floors in early Christian basilicas are lined with that symbol, but just like you said there's nothing that can be done.
Ancient cities also have it as a decorative element usually on the edges lining the mosaic like frame.

It is surprisingly hard to find good pictures of it, but a rather stunning example of the fascist style (if you ask me) is the Palazzo delle Poste e Telegrafi in Bergamo, Italy. It was completed in 1932 with Angiolo Mazzoni as the architect.
