Design

This beautiful enamel pin shows the Broc from Badger King Tattoo’s take on the famous raven banner.

The raven banner appears several times throughout history including on the banner of the Norwegian King Harald Hardrada in 1066, a year in which the fate of Britain was decided.

The raven banner is also associated heavily with the Irish vikings and appears on penny minted by Olaf Cuarán in the 10th century.

Perhaps the raven banner contains a link to Odin’s mythical messengers Hugin and Munin; Though and Memory. Which one it is on this enamel pin we will leave up to you…

 

Material & Make

Our pins are crafted in solid metal with enamel detailing and a sturdy pin for security of closure and longevity.
