@westofEden The Cod has been the mark of Iceland since ca. 1500. I have no idea where some connect a Gyrfalcon to Iceland. We have the word "Landvættir" that google translates as "Land-wetted" something that seems to be a nonsense word.
Landvættirnar are Guardians of Iceland;
"Gammur" (i.e. Gyps fulvus or Griffon Vultures. is this the gyr-falcon connection?)
Ox (Uxi)
Giant. (as some have said... our Guardian Giant misunderstood when (the English) demanded "cash" so he sent them (all Europe actually) lot of ash!) Yes we have a "very big viking" as a guardian (landvætt)
