Coat of Arms of the Merchant Jarldom


Recommended Posts

Beloved Patricians and Friends,

 

I hereby present you with the Arms of the Jarldom of Eidsivarike, which is also known as the Artisan Jarldom. You may find it in the post below.

  • The three woolsacks symbolize trade and commerce of which the area of Eidsivarike since ancient times is a very important centre;
  • The white border represents the ancient stronghold of Hedeby Rock, which nowadays is the seat of the Jarl of Eidsivarike;
  • The royal colour of purple symbolizes the prosperity of the area of the Eidsiva Tribe, where it was said that any man could live as a king there.

On the motto scroll below the Arms there is written the motto of the Jarldom of Eidsivarike: "En god gjerning fortjener en annen", which means "Quid pro quo" in the local Storish dialect.
