Reclaiming the Holy Fylfot
It is our intention to reclaim the Fylfot (more commonly known as the swastika), one of our most holy symbols in the Northern Traditions. I will reiterate that we have no ties what so ever with racist or hate groups or propaganda. We at Northvegr Félag say those who use our holy symbols and/or our ways to promote such agendas dishonor our ways and our god/esses and will receive that which they deserve. We do not in any way deny the suffering and pain that the Jews experienced during the holocaust. What we do want to do is educate all, about the history of this ancient symbol so that the few decades of it's misuse can be put in proper perspective to it's thousands of years of history.
In Northern Tradition, the Fylfot has a long history. It is commonly used as a symbol of Thorr's hammer; Mjolnirr or Thorr himself. It was commonly found carved into rocks along with Thor's hammer and is used as a symbol of blessing just as Mjolnirr is.
