The KRIT (K-R-I-T) Motor Co. started car production in Detroit / Michigan in 1909.
They offered four-cylinder cars for the whole of their lives, except for 1913 when a KRIT Six was marketed for that single year.
As emblem the swastika has been selected ( years before Adolf Hitler abused the emblem) to ensure favor of auspicious gods !
The company was in financial trouble most of the time and car production ceased in 1915.

Here is one of the most sought after radiator emblems:
|round emblem with original colors|
|Dimensions||ca. 6.0 cm|
|Year||1914 - 1915|
As it is rare and expensive Harry Pulfer reproduced this emblem choosing the wrong colors.
The colors red, black and white were used for the NAZI swastika. I have never seen a KRIT radiator with an emblem in these colors. Only accessories like pins and brooches are showing these colors.
