The Valknut, represents three interlocking triangles depicted across numerous artifacts dating from the Pagan Scandinavian Era and was associated with the God Odin. The word Valknut translates as "Knot of the Fallen" or "Warrior's Knot" and was often related to the dead. It would indicate that the fallen were now among the warriors living in Valhalla, Odin's hall. The greatest honour for a Viking warrior was to die bravely in battle and be taken to Valhalla.
