Gar rune pendant

This pendant was produced by Otto Gahr - and is of the Gar rune. I'm wondering if there is a connection between the name Gahr and the word Gar? The Gar rune is referred to as the Spear rune, and it must be remembered that the National Socialists were fascinated with the Spear of Destiny

The rune is a rune binding with the Ing rune and the Gift rune - hence the name Gungnir, the Spear of Woden.

The Triskelion

This symbol is more recognisable as the logo for the 'skinhead' movement Blood and Honour, who themselves use the logo taken from the Afrikaner movement, the AWB - Afrikaner Weerstandsbewegin.

The symbol is certainly pagan in origin and was widely used throughout National Socialist Germany - and was even carved onto Himmler's chair. This National Socialist book titled 'Your Destiny' carries the triskelion on its cover. 

The emblem seems to have its origins - or at least is connected to - the pagan symbol we call the Valknot. The Valknot varies in style but the basic concept is that is consists of three interlocking triangles. The triskelion symbol lies at the heart of the valknot.

Woden - god of the Männerbünde und Wehrbauern!

Heraldic shields and flags often preserve the regional historical origins and customs - if we look at the flag of Börde we find that this peasant region of Germany bares the image of Woden!

If we look at the name Börde, also spelt Boerds - we see it having the same etymology as the Dutch/Afrikaans 'Boers' meaning 'farmer'. Woden has always been the God of the peasant Saxon Wehrbauern and Männerbünde  (The South African Boer are an excellent example of the Wehrbauer - militant Germanic farmers who fought the Rothschild's led British Army 1 2

The flag of Börde is highly symbolic -

Clearly we see here the figure of Woden upon his white horse. He holds his spear Gungnir and a Germanic Hege-shield. More importantly he wears a mask depicting his role as Grim. He also is seen riding over a serpent - again highly symbolic of the god Woden.

Our history was hidden and incorporated into such heraldic customs and local tradition, more often than not goes unnoticed by the majority of folk.  

Whilst reading Wulf's article on the Germanic tribes in Britain here, I was reminded of an article I had posted here on the titles of Hengest and Horsa and their relation to the horse headed gables we find on the Saxon peasant houses (Bauernhaus) across Saxony and parts of the Germanic Low Countries. In Wulf's article he tells of a legend referring to the sister of Hengest and Horsa - that of Svava, which means 'Swan'.

In my previous article I explored the idea that the names Hengest and Horsa were the 'titles' that the Germanic twins had given themselves - which seems to me to be more likely. Apart from the Horse headed gables we find another symbol sometimes used, though not seemingly as often - that of the Swan! Thus these gable ends certainly fit with the legends of this important family. 

In these pictures we can see an example of the Swan gable ends - these one from Jork in Niedersachsen

This example shows both the Hengest and Horsa gables, along with a white swan. The swan is a an important Wodenist symbol - a bird which symbolises the Sun and the Valkyries.
