Interesting. Very bold colors. The knight is maybe a little overly detailed, but otherwise the design is simple and would be easily recognized from a distance.

Balder, sometimes transliterated as Baldr or Baldur, was one of the Sons of Odin (one of Thor's younger brothers), a Norse deity of various nice things (light, wisdom, beauty, justice, love, just generally swell things). The story of his death due to Loki's chaotic schemes is a major element of Norse mythology, and there were prophetic legends that he would be returned to life after Ragnarok to become one of the gods of the new world.

The three "sinker" regions for re-founded nations are all associated with death and rebirth: Balder, Osiris (famous for having been brought back to life temporarily before becoming ruler of the land of the dead), and Lazarus (the man Jesus resurrected after he had lain in the tomb for days).

Oh wow! I know very little about Greek mythology. Well thanks for educating me otherwise, I'd be thinking balder was nothing significant and just one of the many weird names people come up with.

Haha, I mean Norse Mythology? Right?. Gosh I'm terrible at all mythologies. For some reason I thought they were all the same. xD

While they are not, it is a generally accepted theory (that is: a hypothesis for which there is good evidence) that the Greco-Roman, Norse, Vedic, Avestan, Celtic, and several other mythologies all spring at least in part from a common source which spread around the world. (The motif of a storm god slaying a dragon to release someone or something is extremely common in comparative religion all over the world, for example.) So, while the Norse pantheon and mythic structure has many differences from the Greek one, they also have similarities, and if you know very little about them it isn't too surprising that they get confused. One major difference, for example, is that the closest equivalents to Zeus (who rules the Greek pantheon) are Thor and Tyr, neither of whom holds a ridership position in the Norse pantheon (Thor has Zeus' association with storms and the sky, while Tyr has his association with justice and guarding, and Tyr's ancient name Tiwaz comes from the same Proto-Indo-European root as Zeus, "Dyeus.")

Aelyria wrote:...Tiwaz comes from the same Proto-Indo-European root as Zeus, "Dyeus.")

Its also the root for the Latin word for God, "Deus," which has spread to the rest of the romantic languages: Dios (Spanish), Dieu (French), Dio (Italian), Déu (Catalan), etc. etc. etc.
