Celtic / IrishTriskele

The triskele has been in use since ancient times in Celtic culture to symbolize the cycle of life. It has also been a symbol for the Holy Trinity since post-pagan times and medieval times in Scotland, Ireland and parts of England and Wales.

As with many of the pagan myths and stories that changed during this time period so did the pagan symbols the were once part of the culture in an effort to convert the entirety of celtic culture to Christianity.

The Triskele was also a symbol for the three godesses of Celtic mythology (also found in Greek mythology). There is some debate if it came to be a symbol for wise men, leaders, scholars and people of the arts among the druids and ancient celts alike. Origins of this can be found in Brigid, daughter of Dagba (Brigid is one of the three godesses. When looking at the symbol it is clear to see that spirals move inward therefore also being cited that each spiral symbolizes strength, honor & fortitude

Spiral Triskele

The Celtic symbole of three conjoined spirals may have had triple significance similar to the imagery that lies behind the triskelion. The triple spiral motif is a Neolithic symbol in Western Europe. It is carved into the rock of a stone lozenge near the main entrance of the prehistoric Newgrange monument in County Meath, Ireland.

A variant of the symbol is also found, carved into the wall in the inner chamber of the passage tomb.

Because of its celtic associations, it is also used as a symbol of Brittany in northern France which has a strong celtic heritage.
