Rarog by Marek Hapon

In Slavic mythology, the Raróg (Russian: Рарог), far from a demon, was the fiery falcon. Fire - is the symbol of purity of conscience and mind.

Rarog was illustrated on coat of arms of ancient Slavs. They have chosen this image for blazon, simply because falcon is the only predatory bird that attacks their opponent to the face, without using any cunning tactics. You can still see Rarog on the blazon of Ukraine.

It is also the name of a caldera on Jupiter's moon Io, an eruption[1] from which was recorded by the W. M. Keck Observatory and Japan's HISAKI (SPRINT-A) spacecraft on August 15, 2013.

The northern cardinal-shaped Raróg is a symbol of CD Projekt, Polish video game developer.[2]
