Mjolnir, the hammer of Thor, the god of thunder and protector of mankind, is the most famous Viking symbol.
It was worn by Vikings long into the Christian period as a symbol of their faith and allegiance to the old gods.
The hammer represented strength and protection. It was with this hammer that Thor battled the giants that threated the Norse cosmos with their chaotic forces.
But it was also with this hammer that Thor preserved the protective function of society, hallowing important social events such as births and weddings.
Thus, Mjolnir represented protection and strength in every aspect of life, both on the battlefield and in the home.
