Robert Blumetti, Twelve Questions
Regarding the rosette or sun of the Alps symbol
Question eleven has been explored here before, and Robert Blumetti gives his ideas about it....
11. Any reaction to what the Deitsch (Pa Germans) call the Rossette, or 'Sun of the Alps' in Padania, (Po Valley)?
I will confess I know very little about the controversy regarding the Sun of the Alps, but it is interesting that it looks like the six-armed variation of the Hagalaz Rune. Hagalaz is considered the “Mother of all Runes,” and in its shape we can find all 24 Runes of the Elder Futhark. Halagaz means “Hail” and hail is ice that falls from the heavens. When it crashes into the surface of the earth, it destroys all life, but then the ice melts and is transformed into water, it fertilizes the earth, permitting new life to grow. This is evolution and the cycle of all life–birth-growth-age-death-rebirth.
From what I know of the Sun of the Alp it is a very ancient symbol found in many parts of the world, just like the Swastika which represents that sun. Like the Swastika it is a symbol of great occult knowledge and where ever it was used by ancient people, it survived through the centuries, in most cases, losing its original meaning and being adopted by the local inhabitants as its own national or tribal symbol.
I understand that Northern Italians have adopted it as their own tribal symbol and regard it as a symbol relating the the many flowers that grow in the Po Valley. The Po Valley of Italy has always been famous for its flower industry, and that’s why the Northern League of Italy has adopted it as its symbol.
What you might find interesting is that my name “Blumetti,” which is Italian might have a connection to the Rosette or Sun of the Alps. My Paternal grandfather came to America in 1893 from Northern Italy. My grandfather belonged to the north Italian aristocracy and a member of the Royal Guard to the King of Italy before coming to America, after his family lost everything in a economic depression of the early 1890s. The Blumetti family has a family cress with red roses on it because the Blumetti name means “Little Flower.” The first part of my name Blum, is actually German for “flower.” The suffix etti in Italian for little.
