Svarog (Old Church Slavonic: Сваро́гъ, Russian: Сварог, Polish: Swaróg) is a Slavic deity known primarily from the Hypatian Codex, a Slavic translation of the Chronicle of John Malalas. On the basis of this text, some researchers conclude that Svarog is the Slavic god of celestial fire and of blacksmithing. Alternative names would be Rod and Usud.

Svarog can be compared to the Greek God Hephaestus. He is the father of Dažbog, a Slavic solar deity.

His symbols are Kolovrat and Swastika. Unlike Swastika used by nazi Germany in pre-WW2 and during WW2 eras, Slavic swastika represents the Sun itself and infinite cycle of life and death, therefore it is considered the most sacred of all symbols used in Slavic faith.
