The Vikings must be very proud of their great treasure of ancient symbols. Viking symbols were not only beautiful in appearance but also in their meaning. For their life closely connected with agricultural, seafaring, and warfare activities, they always wished for luck and protection on their going. And one of the Viking most important and famous symbol was the Vegvísir or the Viking Compass.
Vegvísir or the Viking Compass was a symbol consisting of eight spikes spreading out. Actually, the Vegvísir’s design much resembled the compass we know today. Four main spikes presented four cardinal directions: East, South, North, and West. The other four ones were for the intercardinal directions. The pronunciation of the word “Vegvísir ” could be “VEEG-vee-seer” and its closest meaning was the “Path Finder”.
