If you find symbolism interesting you will note that the “x” in Dixie is at the precise center of the word, flanked on each side by two letters. It is at the heart of Dixie, you could say.
The “x” is also the St. Andrew’s Cross, the basis for the flag of Scotland, St. Patrick’s Saltire and is featured prominently on the British Union Jack. As we are an Anglo-Celtic nation, the “x” then connects Southerners to our historic roots in the British Isles and transcends the Anglo-Saxon – Celtic divide there. The basis for both the Confederate Battle Flag and the Southern Nationalist Flag is this St. Andrew’s Cross or “x.” It is also featured on the State flags of Florida, Alabama and Mississippi – as well as the former State flag of Georgia.
The word “Dixie” likely came from the “Dix” (ten) notes issued by the Bank of New Orleans until 1860 and distributed up and down the Mississippi River. That note featured “dix” in large type in the center of the bill. Of course, “x” is also the Roman numeral for ten.
If we go back to the early roots of our language we find that the “D” (as in “Dixie”) corresponds to the Anglo-Saxon rune “Dagaz,” which is represented by an “x”-like symbol that looks like the Southern Nationalist Flag. The esoteric meaning of this powerful ancient symbol of our folk is “awakening” – perfect for our revolutionary national struggle for survival today. It is a rune of “bold change” and the “Rune of the hyper-consciousness. The process of concept becoming realized.” It is also a solar symbol, a connection to our ancient Aryan past as a conquering people.
