The inside of the complete castle was redesigned in an NS-specific mythological way. SS architect Hermann Bartels presented a first draft of plans that envisioned using the North Tower on three different levels:.
- Telling it to the Judge (McGill-Queens Native and Northern Series).

However, a meeting in the first floor mosaic room never occurred—the building work at the room was stopped in In , when the "final victory" didn't materialize, the castle was partially blasted and set on fire by the SS, but the two redesigned rooms in the North-Tower stayed intact. Usually the room where the sun wheel is placed can only be viewed from the outside, through a lattice door. Due to the lighting conditions, the mosaic in the floor looks black and not green - a possible reason for the name "Black Sun".
It is not known whether this symbol was placed in the marble floor at Wewelsburg before or after the National Socialist Regime and the taking over of the castle by Himmler.
There is speculation as to whether the symbol was put into the hall by the Nazis or whether it was there a long time before but there is no definitive proof either way. It must be noted that the book sold by the Wewelsburg museum on the history of the castle from to makes no mention of who put it there.
Scholars today are reluctant to say with any certainty why it was put there, or by whom. There is, although its origins are unknown, an identical rendition of the Wewelsburg Schwarze Sonne in a wall painting at a World War II military bunker memorial to Otto von Bismarck in Hamburg below a statue of Bismarck.

The material fire is - seen in this way - also just the shadow of the spiritual fire. Another interpretation is that the symbol incorporates twelve reversed "Sig runes" of the Armanen runes. Allegedly, the design was drawn for Heinrich Himmler from an "old Aryan emblem",  and was meant to mimic the Round table of Arthurian legend with each spoke of the sun wheel representing one "knight" or Officer of the "inner" SS.
