    Well, I am not sure if that's already stated somewhere, or even often discussed in public, but I wondered about the repeating Borknagar CD-print... this symbol on the black background.

    It's the same on every CD except the first one (correct me if I'm wrong) - what's the meaning of it? Anyone knows? I have never seen it before (and it sure looks like something connected with Norse artisanship)

    It's a norse-style drawing of a dragon.

    Thanx, but I wonder why they use it again and again? Something about Superstition? ;)

    I think it just gives all of the CDs a uniform look. And I like it! Always the same symbol on the CDs, only with a minor addition, like a Q or an E. And you're right, on "Borknagar" (self-titled) the CD shows Brun rather than the dragon shape.

    The Century Media version of the Borknagar album has the dragon picture with the Borknagar logo written in yellow.

    Oh, does it? So there is actually a CM re-release? Interesting, I didn't know that.

    The dragon is the Borknagar mark, just like Emperor have the E... I think it comes from an old Norwegian history book...

    The dragon has a special meaning for me as well, from the celtic aspect, which is simular to the nordic one...

    @ Somber Soul
    Yeah theres a Century Media "re-release" but I don't think it has much different about it. There are still ten tracks and the liner notes are made of one folded page with a picture of a autumn forest and dark clouds; the back of the book has a picture of the sea and clouds. Liner notes are very limited except for a note by Oystein.
