Hitler himself is supposed to have come up with the design. Seven was a lucky number in Teutonic mythology. Hitler took four sevens and joined them at right angles at their bases. He then reversed the sevens to show he was not superstitious. The entire swastika was then tilted to the right to give the impression of being in forward motion. The red, white and black were traditional Germanic colors.
True or not. I don't know. This was one of the "official" versions given out by the Ministry of Propaganda and National Enlightenment; Goebbels department.
As for other Third Reich symbols, flags, etc., every nation has a heraldry department that dreams up these things. So does every military organization. My guess is most Third Reich symbolism originated from these departments.
