    Ericson Raven Flag

    1003 - 1003

    These flags represent the Vikings reverence for the raven. When making long voyages Vikings took along ravens and released them. They would fly in the direction of land leading the Viking to safety. Thorifinn Karlsefini, brother of Leif Ericson, probably carried this banner to the new world in 1003 A.D.
