Arms of the Imperial Branch of the House of Ettlingar Freyu

Recommended Posts

Members of the Imperial Branch of the House of Ettlingar Freyu, Beloved Patricians and Friends,

 

I hereby present you with the Arms of the Imperial Branch of the House of Ettlingar Freyu. You may find it in the post below.

  • The blue rose is traditionally associated with royal blood and denotes regal majesty. The colour white depicts faith and purity.
  • The shield is supported on both sides by the Lady Freyja who is the Fulltrui of the House of Ettlingar Freyu;
  • The shield is also adorned with the Most Treasured Imperial House Order of Heidr, which is one of the names of the Lady Freyja;
  • The shield is crowned with the Imperial Crown of Valtia.

On the motto scroll below the Arms there is written the motto of the House of Ettlingar Freyu: "Frøya er vår varme i kulden", which means "Freyja is our warmth in the cold" in the Storish language.

I very much like them. I am intrigued by the Most Treasured Imperial House Order of Heidr. Could someone perhaps tell me more about it?

The Most Treasured Imperial House Order of Heidr is an Order of Thegnhood of which the membership is reserved to members of the Imperial Branch of the House of Ettlingar Freyu. The Order is named after the Lady Freyja, "Heidr" being one of her many names.

 

The insignia of the Order consist of a collar, a star, a sash, and a badge.

  • The collar is composed of golden waves and golden shells, which refer to the Lady Freyja's capacity as a Sea Goddess, as well as a golden pendant with an effigy of the Lady Freyja in black, doing Heiðrdans.
  • The star of the Order is five-pointed star with a colourfully enamelled depiction of the Lady Freyja doing Heiðrdans in a circle in the star's center.
  • The riband of the Order is a red sash with two golden stripes, each one near the border.
  • The badge is worn suspended from a small gold link from the riband at the right hip, and is a smaller version of the pendant of the collar.
