The Shamrock is a well recognized Irish symbol. Legend tells that when St. Patrick began to teach Christianity to the Irish Celts he used the humble Shamrock to help him explain the power of three – namely The Holy Trinity. The little three leaved plant was perfect to represent The Father, The Son and The Holy Spirit.
The Trinity knot is a very ancient symbol for the Celts. Pre Christianity it represented the elements – earth, water and fire while also representing the three domains of land, sea and sky. The Celts believed that the most important things in life came in threes. Each point of the Trinity knot symbolized one section of each of these trios. Today the Trinity knot represents The Father, The Son and Holy Spirit.
Today the Trinity knot is also known to represent love and protection making this a perfect gift for one that you love or for a friend.
