The Trinity knot, also known as the Irish love knot or a Triquetra, is a symbol of Ireland’s ancient Celtic culture.
The endless intertwining curves have many positive interpretations both in ancient and modern times.
In the Christian faith, the three points of the Trinity knot represent the Holy Trinity of Father, Son and Holy Spirit. In its original form of vesicae pisces, it incorporates the fish which is a popular Christian symbol. Occasionally, you may see the Trinity knot enclosed within a circle as a means of emphasizing unity or eternity.
Other widely accepted meanings include:
- Mind, Body Spirit.
- Earth, Air, Water.
- Past, Present, Future.
- Unity without end.
- Eternal love.
This wide array of interpretations reminds us that the meanings of these engaging knots are not set in stone. The lack of written records on the subject causes us to use our own powers of deduction.
May all your Celtic knots be tied with dignity and wisdom.
