Noble and White!

As we've seen in the previous post how the Cornflower is the emblem of Germanic Volk, many from the mountain regions adopted the Edelweiss as their 'national' flower, including the Germanic folk of Austria. Numerous National Socialist Mountain regiments included the Edelweiss as regimental insignia.

The origins of the word 'Edelweiss' are the same as that of the Edel (Odal) rune - which means Noble.
Weiss is German for White, thus Noble and White! 

Edel is also the root of the word Adolf - which means Noble Wolf!
