The only exception for using NAZI symbols are educational and 
documentational purposes. If it's used to identify them in
movies (see Indiana Jones 4 example) they must be the "bad guys".
If this is not clear, it's forbidden. (this also refers to
PC-games, they did already forbid certain games due to this.)

Besides that, imho just more symbols won't make freeciv a 
better game.
