  • The motto of the Lady Esther Isles is taken from a quote by the Lady Esther in which she explains to Lady Sigrdrífa the Priestess of the House of Vanadís, who is the Yfirstormarksgythia and High Priestess of the Thingeyri Temple, the whys and wherefores of the Bosom Trees of the Godsgrove of the Temple of the Lakes, at Haraldsborg. The full quote is:
The Ash and Elm are important symbolic trees for Hurmudans. In our mythology, the humans came from the holy lakes, but were nourished by these two trees, grew strong and conquered the world. That's why we call all humans "children of Ash and Elm". It's to remind us that nature is our nourisher, like a mother or father, and not our slave.
