Raven Banner | Enamel Pin
Sorry, currently out of stock
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…

About The Artist
Broc Ó Diolúin, known as The Badger King within his tattoo work, is renowned for his work with Celtic and Nordic art styles. His creations and knowledge also manifest in a project known as Badger Horns, where he shares stories and mythology related to Celtic folklore. Though he calls Llandudno in North Wales his home, Broc’s dedication to the Irish language and lore is apparent in his work with the ancient script of Ogham, as well as his mastery of the artistic styles seen within the Book of Kells.
