Othala Rune

The othala rune is part of the runic alphabet system, a system of writing used (with many variations) across pre-Roman Europe. In the 20th century, Nazis in Germany adopted the othala rune, among many other similar symbols, as part of their attempt to reconstruct a mythic "Aryan" past. Following World War II, white supremacists began using the othala rune, and today it is commonly seen in tattoo form, as part of group logos and elsewhere.
