Vinland flag


Vinland flag which is a Nordic cross flag or more specifically “the people’s technocratic republic of Vineland”.

An American Gothic metal band Type O Negative designed it.

The Vinland flag basically was a manifest of a variety of Peter Steele’s interests and political ideals.

Such as Paganism, socialism, and nature connectedness including his own Scandinavian heritage (his mother was part Icelandic).

He incorporated his idealism with his favorite colors, green, black, and white.

And made the Vinland’s flag which later appeared on many T-shirts and music albums by Goth-Rock group.

Though originally the Vinland flag itself had no racism implications.

But subsequently, numerous far-right groups in North America embraced the flag as an ethnic flag.

That includes followers of German neopagan groups, vendors, and some other extremist groups.
Patriotic Flags Company was the first company that made Vinland’s flag for sale in 2004.
