The Trinity knot is among the most significant Irish symbols for its historic and religious meaning. You can display one in your home, or give it as a gift with the Celtic Shadows Trinity Knot Bronze Wall Plaque.
In Irish Catholicism, the Trinity knot symbolizes the Holy Trinity of Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. But the symbol itself actually predates the introduction of Christianity to Ireland in the 5th century. For the ancient Celts, the trinity knot, as well as its variant the triple spiral, symbolized the three forms of the natural world — earth, air and water — as well as the three stages of life — life, death and rebirth.
Later, as the symbol compounded meaning through the generations, the addition of an interwoven circle signified the eternal interconnectivity of all things in the universe, spiritual and physical.
