Copyright © Françoise Herrmann

Below a runic carving of King Harald 1 “Blåtand” (Bluetooth) Gormsøn, holding a laptop and cell phone!

And  the Bluetooth® logo consisting of the two letter symbols, or runes, of the runic alphabet representing ‘Hagall’ or “H” for “Harald”, and ‘Bjarkan’ or “B” for “Blåtand” (meaning Bluetooth in Old Norse), developed by a marketing design firm.
