This article is part of a series on. I would like to say that the swastica has been around for much longer than the memory of the nazis and their tragedies.
In reality, saying that the swastica looking like the thunder cross would be more politically correct, seeing as though this symbol was around longer than the swastica, as well.
There are about more additional symbols you could post from the Folklore tradition of how symbols were handed down from generation to generation and that is by Textiles, which saved the symbols from pre-pagan era into christian era, look up slavic and balkan embroidery and you will see all the ancient pre-pagan symbols, especially in the Latvian and Lithuanian sybolism.
This is wonderful so informative. I am of German and Norwegian decent. I have always been fascinated by Norse religion and the Vikings.
I would love to know more. Would anyone be able to suggest informative books on he subjects? Can anyone help me?
Send me an e-mail and I will send you the photo I took. I love that a collection of symbol to this degree exists.
Would anyone have a good reference or source for this? I call my 6 month old son my little Viking Prince. Proud to be Viking!!
Of course, I have the red hair too. My son as well who will be seven in February. Of course in a bit of Celtic too.
We are the Vikings so hear me roar!! I am kin to Erik the Red as well! My family moved to Riverton, MB, Canada back in the day.. I am lucky enough that we have a huge book of our family history called the Icelandic Sage..
Goes all the way back.. Currently designing my tattoo for my grandmother… Loving the info on this page.. Hi I am really curious on how to track someone in your bloodline.
Any information on how to track it would be extremely helpful. I would suggest gathering as much info from your family as possible before you begin.
Then check free resources such as findagrave, etc. Many genealogy forums are very helpful and you will find the further back you go, the easier it often gets, as you will meet many distant cousins doing the same research!
But if you claim to be a direct descendent i would like to know where they found his grave? Please, before you get any of these as a tattoo or jewelry, be aware of what they mean.
It is a curse. One could legally kill someone in a duel over such words. This is not a symbol you want to wear! The LDS Church as well has excellent genealogists.
Keep in mind that spellings of surnames vary wildly even for the same person- dates and locations are usually more helpful.
My family is Swedish in origin and I can tell you that, that is probably as far as you are going to get with your heritage.
Because at that point is when Modern governments started to form and tax the people. In reply to the post below. I found a lot of good information at http: Hi i have been practicing nordic paganism for as long as i can remember i am 15 and felt all alone until i found this.
Can you tell me about your religion? I am working on a drawing for someone that wants symbols to represent birth, growth, love, honor, death and afterlife.
A boat is a good symbol for a journey from birth to grave. And for the Vikings boats were an important part of life, as well as distinctive in design.
By the way, make sure never to mix Celtic and Norse designs. If you do not catch my drift, stay off. If you do, keep it clean.
Have a look at www. By the way, in all of Norway, I would trust one tattoo artist for giving me a Norse tattoo only. She gave me mine. I was brought into this world as a Christian, although I was never into the almighty one god whom controls almost everything.
I have a pendant in the shape of a shield with a spiral inlaid in the center and I woul verry mutch like to know what it means. I have been searching for hours now and have nothing to show for it other than a theory that it is a representation ofa whirlpool and means community.
The Vikings, like the Celts, really did not have a concept of nuclear families as we do today. Neither Vikings nor Celts would have had symbols explicit about love at least not generically , but emblems of gods or goddesses might suffice.
You may be looking for this: I finally found my family. Hi Jennifer, you seem to be very knowledgeable. Can you help me with Dievturiba.
American born but truly Latvian at heart. One of the very,very few religions that seems to make sense to me. I was a Catholic for most of my life, but have converted to Norse Paganism.
I have a sense of belonging and have truly found myself in this religion. I have been practicing for 7 months and am dedicated to it.
The man I married and had two children with is very into it. So much so we named our babies Freya and Odin. I cannot find the meaning to this symbol I found in my Norse myths book.
Email me a randaline yahoo. Odin, chief of the Norse gods, learned the secrets of goddess magick not easily — he gave up an eye and hung from the World Tree for a really long time , but in so doing, he brought about the twilight of the male gods Gotterdamerung , because they became divorced from their female roots.
This symbol, a male version four spiral spokes instead of three of the triskelion, represents masculine magickal power. It is a symbol for Norse magick.
Well as u can see its a symbol, of the sun, and the cyclus, but it can have alot og meanings in between! Yes- but we must appease the gods of SEO, in order for people to find what they need.
Nice to know i share a little blood with vikings. I have a symbol that i need identfied. A full back peace of Mjolnir with my last name in Norse runes!
I suggest you get a valknot next and understand the true meaning of what it is to be a norseman. Can you enlighten me about this?
I am truly interested in what you Have to say. I have been interested and drAwn my whole life. Maybe two Three generations.
Anyway, I would just love to speak with someone Who truly knows what it is to be.. What is in our blood and hearts. And to know where you came from is to know something of who you are.
So you can find me. If you hate fb as many do lmk and I would be happy to send you my email.
