Moreover, according to legend, this was the color scheme and basic design use by Ivar Vidfadmi (600s AD) during his united reign of Scandia. Correspondingly, Scandinavian Nations have ever since used a similiar design, reputedly as a heritage from his realm and Golden Era!
And, though he is probably a very distant relative of our KoNSvaRa (or Hebrew Viking Clan), Ivar is claimed to be part of Our FAMILY. And is also referred to by the more familiar name of Hebrew Family Tribe of BENJAMIN. (See Genesis 49:27) Now, Ivar Vidfadmi, the Mediavel Uniter of all Scandia, used this emblem--and apparendly for similar reasons. (Click on his name, for more details about him.) As well as the original Scandia Flag, above!
More on him, later (below) ... or click the picture, above, for VIKINGS, now.
We focus on the Mediavel (Judeo-Christian) Culture of the early Vikings or Northern Peoples, which we believe was prominent among the Ancient Goths or GahTSK of Northern Europe (which later became the Mediavel Vikings). For, these Peoples were Descendants of Abraham, by Keturah, and migrated into the Scandinavian Region from the Ancient Northern Kingdom of Israel (Genesis 25:1-6; I Chronicles 1:32-33) and thus became commonly known as the Goths or Gotts (Ancient Peoples of God).
We also promote the Laws of God, as found in the Holy Scriptures, which are the source of Divine Culture--the source that gave birth to the Viking Mediavel World. For, when these Peoples followed God and HIS Ways, they prospered and rose in power and influence--but when they turned from God, they waned and became poor and powerless (Proverbs 14:34; Isaiah 60:12). (See Our Library for more Cultural details on the Divine Mediavel Society.)
Consequently, we strongly spread the Viking Revival or Northmen Renewal (the RETURN or ShuVaH of Our Times), which aims to bring back the Peoples of the Northern Nations to God and His Ways. In doing this, we follow the 3 Core Teachings of ZDK (and the Full Gospel): 1) the Blood Atonement of Christ on the Cross for the payment of Sins, and 2) the giving of the Gifts by the Holy Ghost, today. As well as 3) maintaining Holiness and Sanctification by obeying God's Laws (especially the 10 Commandments--and their related Scriptures). For more details, see Our Basic Teachings, or use the link, below:
EMBRACING THE FAITHFUL:
Moreover, in the Varangian (Eastern or Russian and CHRISTIAN Vikings) atmosphere of openness and tolerance, we call upon ALL the Faithful, whether they be Descendants of Keturah (Nordic, Viking Christians), Descendants of Sarah (Jews), or Descendants of Hagar (Ishmaelites or Arabs - Muslims), for we are ALL Descendants of Abraham (by blood or adoption), for them to UNITE with us in this Holy and Sacred Cause of bringing a post-modern RETURN to God among the Tribes of Abraham's Descendants or T.A.D. (And a restoration of God's Divine Culture in Our Days). For more details on this, see Our Article on the Tri-Unity of the Faithful.
However, this is not an ordinary Viking Ship! For, you will note that it is set on a regular Mediavel Shield, symbolizing the Mediavel Roots of Our Realm (and its Judeo-Christian Heritage). Moreover, the broad, grey sea represents the world of the wicked (which we are safe from, in the boat of Believers). And the cloudy grey skies, the storms of evil that try to sweep through our lives and blow us off course. But, Our ship or ark is safely shielded by seven Viking Shields (also seen on the Navigation Bar), representing the Divine protection and help of the Spirit of God! Morover, we struggle to hold Our own on the stormy seas, with seven oars, reperesenting the Commandments of God (which we teach and obey). Moroever, the single sail not only forms a Cross (and symbol of Our Judeo-Christian Faith), but it catches the Divine Wind of the Spirit of God, and blows us on course into the Rivival Fires of the Faithful!
Come and enjoy!
So, try some of these more lengthy sources, below:
While the NORDESEL is but a Cultural Religious Organization in Our Days, (and we may like to look forward to the Prophesied Future, when we shall become a Nation out among the Stars), we also need to remember Our Nordic and Viking History and Heritage! The Scandia Flag of Ivar Vidfami is a very good reminder. For, in the Vidfadmi Era, Ivar managed to Unite all of the Northmen or Vikings into the Kingdom of Scandia (from which the modern term, Scandinavia, gets its meaning).
Reputedly, his Flag set the style for all later Scandinavian Flags. (And, appears to have even left its stamp on the Union Jack of Great Britain.) It has a Cross of Red (or 4 Pointed Star of Abraham) for the Blood Atonement of Christ; over another, larger Cross of White (or sometimes a White Lozenge) for the purity of the Body of Believers formed by the Faithful; and on a field of green for the masses of the Peoples out there who need to be reached by the Full Gospel--and brought into the Kingdom of God. (And, its Christmas colors of red, green, and white seem to reflect the importance of that Season to all Scandinavians!)
Thus, as a sign and symbol of the early Scandinavian Revival in the so called Dark Ages (during Ivar's Reign), it has become a common symbol for Our own VIKING REVIVAL in modern times!
