Am I the only one that finds this fucking hilarious?   A friend of mine actually got mad at me because I was laughing so hard when we found this...

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Forest_swastika

I want to clarify that the story I heard was that someone planted those trees AFTER WWII.  And the thought of some one planning this out and planting little saplings and doing all the survey work to set up a gag that will take who knows how long for the trees to grow. I think thats pretty funny.

I am fairly certain that was no gag.
