Folks, it's unlikely the artist ever heard of the Nazis and Hitler. The swastika is part of the Kuna flag and has been long before Hitler came along. 

The Kuna Swastika flag was adopted after the 1925 rebellion against Panamanian suppression. Horizontal stripes have a proportion of 1:2:1 and the central swastika is an ancestral symbol called Naa Ukuryaa. According to one explanation, it symbolizes the four sides of the world or the origin from which peoples of the world emerged. Also known as the flag of Kuna Yala island today, the flag is used for the province of San Blas and also as the Kuna ethnic flag.
