This flag, which is sold by a number of online shops, is charged with two White Supremacist symbols: Aryan fist and word RaHoWa.
The Aryan Fist symbol, consisting of a white fist upwards on a black field, is a twist on the fist representing the Black power movement and the battle against racial oppression. It is used as the logo by White Power (U.S. Nazi Skins).
The concept of a Racial Holy War, or RaHoWa, was first suggested by Ben Klassen, the founder of the Church of the Creator, who believed that White people should unite and undertake a holy war against Jews and non-Whites. The term "RaHoWa" has become a popular war cry for many White supremacist groups since, and flags, stickers, patches and buttons which bear it, often in combination with the Aryan Fist, have become quite popular among them.
The Church of the RaHoWa, sometimes referred to as the "White Crusaders of the RaHoWa", is a break-away group from the Creativity Movement (Aryan Nations).
