Arms Freyja's Necklace2.png

Yo, listen up, Lady Unna and the Freyusmenn!

A High Priestess wishes to convey that she has the honour and the pleasure, both as great as the mighty bosom of the Lady Unna, to present you all with the updated version of the coat of arms of the Jarldom of Freyja's Necklace.

The updated coat of arms aforesaid features the Goddess Freyja, to Whom this Holy Jarldom appertains in Her capacity of Fulltrui and Sacred Queen of the Lands of the Longships Throne, on a purple field - purple being a colour associated with royalty - spreading out the Cloak of Prosperity over the Twenty-Six Jarldoms and its People. The aforesaid cloak is green of colour, which is a colour associated with Freyja. Her Most Sacred Majesty is wearing a bridal crown, to denote that she is married to the High King, as well as a green magical necklace. 

The Lady of the Vanir is surrounded by animals in silver which are since times ancient beyond the memory of woman associated with Her Most Sacred Majesty, to wit: boars and falcons. In addition there are several silver roses, a flower also associated with Kneppedís. All of the aforesaid represents the Lady Freyja as Grantress of Stormark's Prosperity as well as Her Most Sacred Majesty's role as Guarantress and Protectress of the self-same.

The shield is topped with the Imperial Crown of Stormark, also known as the Imperial Crown of Valtia. The crown aforesaid is in turn topped by a wreath on which is seated a Falcon, which is a sacred bird associated with Freyja.

A boar and a Vanic Priestess of the royal rank of Princess of the Ancient Ways serve as shield supporters. The boar is in the Vanic Faith a sacred animal associated with various Gods and Goddesses. The Priestess is spreading out the Cloak of Faith over the Jarldom of Freyja's Necklace and its People. The aforesaid cloak is purple of colour, which is, as said otherwhere in this writing of mine, a colour associated with royalty. She is wearing a Priestessly Crown as well as a pearl necklace with a ruby and gold pendant. The Pearls represent purity and the ruby and gold of the pendant symbolize wealth. Her Royal Highness is a Rauðihár, which means "redhead" in the Storish language. Redheads are revered by the Vanafolk since red hair has traditionally been seen as a sign of descent from high-ranking ancestors and a mark of rulership and Priesthood. Vanafolkers also consider red hair to be a blessing from the Gods and Goddesses and very attractive.

The coat of arms of the Jarldom of Freyja's Necklace also features the collar of the Most Beloved and Most Blessed Imperial Order of the Fulltrui. The Imperial Order aforesaid is, together with the Grand and Glorious Imperial Order of the Two Silver Longships, the Supreme Order of Chivalry of the Twenty-Six Jarldoms. 

The compartment is a meadow strewn with roses, and also contains the motto scroll. The colour of the meadow symbolizes fertility and the many roses allude to Freyja's abundant lusty love. The motto "I Frøyas favn er vi alltid trygge" means "In Freyja's arms we will be safe forever".
