In the Viking belief, the symbol with eight spikes radiating out to protect a circle was known as the Aegishjalmur (Ægishjálmr) or the Helm of Awe. Aegishjalmur can be pronounced as "Eye-gish-hiowl-mer". This symbol was still a mystery though people may view it as a symbol of protection. Closely look at the symbol might show us that this symbol consisted of protective runes encircling the central point.
Many Viking warriors in the past applied this symbol into their shield when they joined the battles. Regardless of any form, whether they wore the jewelry of Aegishjalmur or they inked the symbol into their shield, they wore the symbol as their talisman. They believed that the sacred Helm of Awe would protect them in wars and would give them the strength to fight against their enemies. The symbol was even believed the offer the Viking warriors the glorious victory in battles.
