Here are a couple of links you might find interesting:
the first link had this:
"By 1912, the swasticka was seen in use by many "völkisch"
groups, and the "völkisch" thought began to take on an
anti-Semitic cast. It was popular enough that the firm of Ecklöh
began manufacturing badges, tie pins, buckles, and other such
artifacts incorporating the device"
I was happy believing that in WW1 there was none of this type of
crap associated with the symbol.
but...there you have it.
