Thor's hammer "Mjölnir" is certainly one of the most important Viking symbols. If not the most important. According to Norse mythology, Mjölnir is the most powerful and intimidating weapons in existence.
Although this was used as a weapon by the Thunder God, this symbol was also used in ceremonies to bless marriages, births and funerals.
Despite the chaos that Mjölnir was capable of, this symbol represents blessing, dedication and protection.
The Valknut symbol often appeared on picturesque memorial stones and on shipwrecks. Undoubtedly, the Valknut is one of the most fascinating and popular Viking symbols.
According to Norse beliefs, Odin, the god of death and war, would welcome in Valhalla (the Hall of Slain) the warriors fallen in battle.
