The valknut is a symbol consisting of three interlocked triangles. It appears on a variety of objects from the archaeological record of the ancient Germanic peoples. The term valknut is derived from the modern era, and the term or terms used to refer to the symbol during its historical employment is unknown.
Scholars have proposed a variety of explanations for the symbol, sometimes associating it with the god Odin,warriors who have sacrificed their lives on the battlefield and thus gained a place in Odin’s Valhalla.
It has been compared to the three-horned symbol found on the 9th-century Snoldelev Stone, to which it may be related.
