Ilmarinen struck fire,
Väinämöinen sparked flashes,
With three feathers of Kokk


There are many different versions of the origin story of fire in Finnish mythology, but in almost all of them Kokko, the great eagle, is a common factor. Depending on the source, the first fire was either sparked by using three feathers of Kokko, or the bird itself created a bolt of lightning with its wingstroke, setting a tree ablaze. Kokko was literally the personification of fire, thunder and lightning. The word “ukkonen” means thunder in Finnish.
