German Research

I came across the Valknut and thought it was really interesting, i liked looking at the symbols from the different countries and found that they all had similar ideas behind them, for example the valknut and the irish celtic knots.

“The Valknut means slain warriors and is depicted with  a symbol that comprises of three entwined triangles. Many images of this symbol also reveal it as the representation of afterlife and Odin. Although no one has fathomed the perfect meaning of Valknut, it is believed to have connection with nine worlds that are depicted in the Vikings world. Some theories also have stated connection of this home symbol with reincarnation, as a talisman against evil.”
