Celtic Knot Irish Symbol - Trinity Knot
The Celtic Trinity Knot is also known by the name 'Triquetra' meaning three cornered shape. It is a popular feature in Celtic art, more specifically in Insular art which is found in many beautiful illuminated manuscripts. The trinity knot is believed to represent God as three separate forms; the father, the son and the holy spirit. These three forms exist as one, hence the intertwining form of the knot.
