The Triskele, or Triple Spiral symbol, commonly known as the Triskelion, is widely regarded as one of the oldest Irish symbols in existence, it appears on the Newgrange kerbstones, which date from approximately 3200 BC. Triskeles feature prominently in both ancient and modern Celtic art, as they evoke the Celtic interpretation of the three realms of material existence: earth, water, and sky (and all their interconnections). The symbol is also thought to represent the three worlds: spiritual, physical, and celestial. The Triquetra (trinity knot) is one of the best known symbols in Celtic culture. Many cultures have used this symbol and each attached its own meaning to it. The Trinity Knot is a widely recognized symbol used for the past two centuries by Celtic Christians, and before that by pagans and agnostics as a sign of special things and people that are threefold. The Celts worshipped a moon goddess who was associated with waxing, waning, and full moons. The symbol also represents the Norse God Odin as well as the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit in the Christian tradition.
These two symbols, intertwined and encompassed by a circle emphasize the unity of three forces. Meanings include the infinite and eternity, protection, equality, and divine femininity.
