History behind Drakkar and Vegvisir Shields
The word Drakkar is borrowed from the Swedish word drakar which is the plural of drake, meaning dragon. Drakkar, in French, refers to Longship which is a type of viking vessel that would be decorated with a dragons head. In Old Norse, the word dreki would refer to these same viking ships.
Evidently, dragons are one of the most prominent symbols of viking history and we incorporate it into many of our designs. According to history, the flat bottomed longships which were used by the Vikings would be referred to as "dragonships" by enemies such as the English because of their dragon shaped bows.
These incredible viking ships would often bear the sigil that is called Vegvisir. A leaf from the original Huld Manuscript collected by Geir Vigfusson declares that if this sign is carried, "one will never lose one's way in storms or bad weather, even when the way is not known." These are the shields we have incorporated into our unique design of our Drakkar Incense and Candleholder.
