Valknut – Ring


The Valknut is a symbol in Nordic mythology depicting three interlocked triangles. The name ‘Valknut’ is a modern word, meaning ‘slain warrior knot’, and was created recently in the Norwegian language. Valknut is often found on cremation urns accompanied by wolves and ravens, all of which point to them being the graves of warriors. This also usually draws a connection to Odin, who famously had two raven servants. But Odin also is famously connected to cremation, as well as the frenzy of battle.
