Simargl a Slavic god of fire. He was tied to the hearth, and the sacred fire which burned during religious ceremonies. It can be said that the Simargl personification of fire, which the Slavs constituted the sanctuary, and why her attributed divine properties. In addition to the fire deity – Simargl, in Slavic folklore we encounter the spirits of fire – the divine and the fairy creatures in different ways to help people. Thus, in the folklore of the Slavs encountered Uralic spark pogo stick, the fire fairy to show farmers a place to find gold ore, and there are stray light, “prostitute”, who are the ancestors of Lusatian Serbs showed the way through the dark landscape. Natko Nodilo mentioned Armchairs and Kresnik – personifications of the holy fire which burned in the fields and hills, and the fiery spirits believed the Slavs from the former Yugoslavia. We see that the Simargl, Kres and other will be not only the spirits of fire, but also the divine fire, which the Slavs was the most holy place. Therefore, to better understand Simarglovu nature, we must try to understand what the fire meant for our ancestors and what role he played in their lives.
Simargl or Semargl (Old Church Slavonic: Семарьглъ, Симарьглъ) is a deity or mythical creature in East Slavic mythology, depicted as a winged lion or dog. The Zoryas, solar goddesses who are servants or daughters of the deity Dazhbog, keep Simargl chained to the star Polaris in the constellation Ursa Minor, to prevent him from breaking free and destroying the constellation, and causing the world to end. Simargl is also the father of Skif and the founder of Cythia.
An idol of Semargl was present in the pantheon of Great Prince Vladimir I of Kiev.
