Gungnir, Odi's spear. The Valknut, the symbol for creation, preservation, and destruction. Hugin, and Munin, Odin's Ravens... Surrounded by the runes, which Odin received by sacrificing himself to himself. Great Design!
Odin's symbol is the Valknut, the symbol for creation, preservation, and destruction. "I know that I hung on a windy tree nine long nights, wounded with a spear, dedicated to Odin, myself to myself, on that tree of which no man knows from where its roots run." (Odin in the Havamal, a collection of Old Norse poems from the Viking age).
