Symbolism and Meaning of the Celtic Triskele Spiral
The motif of the triad, the triplet, is central to much of Celtic symbolism. Especially associated with the Isle of Man where the ancient College of Druids was centered, the emphasis is on the numeral three which for the Celts symbolized the principles of creation, preservation and destruction embodied also as the triple goddess, virgin, mother and crone and the phases of the moon.
