«The Nine Billow maidens» is another name for the daughters of Ràn. Heraldic poetry makes frequent use of such periphrasis. Rán is a Norse goddess of the sea. She catches drowned men in her net, and everybody lost at sea belongs to her in the afterlife. Rán’s husband is Ægir, the god of the sea and of the art of brewing ale. Rán and Ægir have nine daughters. This gradient set is a take on the foam on waves, which is described as the hair of the nine maidens.

A gradient set from the palest blue-green to a clear emerald green.

«When hard gusts from the white mountain range teased apart and wove together the storm-happy daughters of Ægir, bred on frost»
