Description

The insignia of the 47th Infantry Division, whose units come from the states of Minnesota and North Dakota (with high levels of Scandinavian immigration). The insignia features a horned helmet, and a shield of Thor, apparently referring to the Marvel comic hero. The motto is Latin, translating as 'fury of the Vikings'. For more information see the US institute of heraldry.
