What is the meaning of the Triskele?
The Triskel is a symbol that we have known for years. Between Viking and Celtic, the war is not really finished to know to which belongs this symbol. The history of the Triskel is quite complicated, but we will see it later in this article.
Nevertheless, it is important to say that it can be found in different forms of writing: Triskel, Triskell, Triskelion or Triskèle. It is a symbol that represents three legs (if we talk about a Triskel of the first type) or three spirals (if we talk about the Triskel of the second type). But it can also be related to any other symbol with three geometrically similar elements.
It is also important to know that the Triskel can turn in two different directions:
- Dextrogyre: which turns to the right and therefore represents the positive side.
- Sénestrogyre: which turns to the left and therefore represents the negative side.
But it is legitimate to ask whether the meaning of the Triskel is really important or not. And as surprising as it may seem, opinions differ:
- Some will say that it makes no sense and that it only represents a shamrock.
- Others say that the Triskel turning to the left is a diurnal symbol and therefore a sign of peace. For the right side, it is possible to say that it is a sign of refusal and war.
What are the meanings of the Triskel?
It is also important to know that the Triskel has different symbolism. At the time of the Vikings, but also in other civilizations, the number three represented many different elements. We have made a list of these so that you can easily find your way around:
- At the Celts: it represents the three principal Gods who were only Lug, the primordial god, Dagda, but also Ogme. It is also necessary to know that it represents the trinitarian character of the single goddess at the latter.
- From a social point of view, it could also represent the three social classes which are the priestly break (that of the druids, the bards, but also the vates), the warrior class as well as the productive class which represents the inhabitants of a village.
- Note also that the Triskeles could also represent the three elements: water, earth and fire.
- It is also possible to see time passing through the three branches of the Triskel: the past, the present and the future.
- When you see a rotating Triskel, you should know that it can also represent the sun.
- The Triskel could also represent the three age groups: youth, adulthood, but also old age.
- Again, the Triskel could be seen as a religious symbol and thus represent the Holy Trinity.
- It is also important to know that the Triskele could also represent the three worlds of the human: the physical, the spiritual and the divine.
