Even though the formation of tribes is no longer used in the form in today's Europe, the traditional symbolism of the rune can be transferred to the present. It shows the connection and the importance of the individual in the community - no matter whether in the family, in the social people or between the countries. People feel a sense of belonging and experience themselves as a unit.

In order to find joy and harmony in a community, the individual feeling of happiness is also important. This is not dependent on the environment or other people.
