The Triple Horn of Odin is an emblem of Odin. It depicts three interlocked horns that are drinking vessels and represent the three horns in the myth regarding Odin and his quest to attain magic mead, and the three draughts he was able to procure over the course of three days. They allude to the three times Odin drank the Mead of Poetry.
The three horns were named Óðrœrir, Boðn, and Són. The story is told of god Odin who bargained to spend three nights with the giantess Gunnlöð who guarded the Mead. The plan was for Odin to drink from the Mead once a day for the three days to gain knowledge of the power of words. Instead of sips, he drank a full horn of Mead every day and by the end of the third day, he had all the mead and he fled the location in the form of an eagle.
This symbol could also be used to symbolize the sacrifice necessary to be made for wisdom. Like Odin who gave his time, wits, energy and eventually part life for the sake of finding knowledge and understanding.
