I think I've answer this several time before. The symbol is one that I've invented myself and it symbolizes Vintersorg(music and lyrics)and it's meaning progress as the music and lyrics develop, so it has no static meaning at all, and isn't a Viking or a norse symbol, it's the symbol of Vintersorg.

I had a local tattoo-guy draw the symbol for me now. If it turns out nice, it will be all over my back in a little while...

yes, viking symbols are different. Think of mjolnir, valknut. The vintersorg logo is nice invented though

Oh, sorry i didn't reallized that before... I was thinking that because all the times i've seen this symbol(by the way, it's an awsome symbol) it was in something viking-related. Well, sorry about my ignorance and thanks to you all that have helped me with that.

No ignorance it were just your thoughts

to show some viking symbols:
Mjolnir, or the hammer of Thor. The god thor got it from the Dwarves. Whenever he throws it to the head of a giant it comes back.

Valknut I give a explanation later[img]/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif[/img]

valknut:Also called "The Knot of the Slain". Three interlaced triangles is used as the symbol of Odhinn. Some times three interlaced drinking horns are used in the place of the triangles. There are several variations on the basic form. It symbolizes the power of Odhinn to bind and unbind the soul.

There also is the sunweel I guess

The "Suncross" is the most commonly used symbol of Odin's power...

I agree with u, it appears on the back cover of the Bathory's HammerHeart album for example.

The only problem is that this symbol was also taken by the right wing extremists and fascisms, but that s another debat...

I am curious if you welded this symbol or just made it look as though you did, whatever the means... the outcome is great!!!

Hmm, well, basically everything from that past time can be taken as a symbol, which holds a certain symbolic or religious value to us nowadays. The question is though, how much it meant back then...

Immortality and Nodhoggr

I've heard that Viking symbol of immortality is a dagger with spider legs. Does anyone know if that is true and where to find pictures of it? What rune represents it? Does anyone know where i can find pictures of Nidhoggr and if he had a symbol or a rune? Thanx a lot!!
