Latvian Runes (ᛚᚨᛏᚡᛁᛃᚨᛊ ᚱᚤᚾᚨᛊ / Latvijas Rūnas)

Latvian Runes is a way to write Latvian with Runes devised by Xavier Merica, who wondered what would happen if Latvia was mostly inhabited by Scandinavian people. He thought the Runic script would be adapated for native language of the region - Latvian.

Visi cilvēki piedzimst brīvi un vienlīdzīgi savā pašcieņā un tiesībās. Viņi ir apveltīti ar saprātu un sirdsapziņu, un viņiem jāizturas citam pret citu brālības garā.


All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another in a spirit of brotherhood.
(Article 1 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights)
