Probably not a single function, because it wouldn't pass the vertical line test. Even if it were rotated, a piecewise function probably wouldn't work, since I see no way of giving a separate function to every interval.
In theory, you could probably combine a bunch of functions and each will contain part of the swastika design in it. One example would be:
y1=x y2=x y3=x+5 y4=x+5 y5=x5 y6=x5
Also, as a sidenote, it should be noted that I in no way condone Naziism, or the display of the swastika symbol; in fact, I find both to be pretty repulsive. I am only answering this question as a student of mathematics.
