    I'm going to take a guess here that Nidafjöll is refering to his Mjolnir necklace. A Mjolnir necklace is used to signify the fact that the wearer is Asatru.

    nooo-hooo! not a mjölnir! its a round one, if i remember right its some sort of old swastika on it, he explained the meaning to me/my friend sooooome years ago, i dont remember. but i remember how i told my friend that the swastikas were mis-used by the nazis back in the 40ies and she then asked mathias 'but you dont have anything to do with their ideology?' oh well, at least i tried it, listening must be a good quality to have... :erk:

    Oh right... That was actually just a shot in the dark from me there...

    Right. I have spent the last half an hour looking through Turisas galleries of them live and I think I know what this symbol looks like:-

    Of course... I could be entirely wrong... I think Warlord Nygard will have to respond himself to this...

    Swastikas were not just ancient Indian. Its such a simple symbol that it crops up all over the world.

    That's a symbol of a finnish unit in World War 2, called Detached Battallion 4, more commonly known for it's long guerrilla operations behind enemy lines. :)
    Shown here:

    It's called 'sissikipinä', which means 'a guerrilla spark'. Don't know it's earlier history before ErP 4, but one could think they've adapted it from some early finnish ornaments or sings.

    It's the symbol of Tursas/Turisas/Iku-Turso, the sea monster described in Kalevala. It's called "Tursaan sydän", the heart of Tursas.
