Historical Flags of the Celtic Nations

The Triskele

Triskele found at Castromao Celtic Hillfort, GaliciaThe Triskele is an ancient solar symbol found across the Celtic Nations and beyond. Originally, the Triskele was used by the Celts as a religious icon. It is believed the Triskele represented the sun that moves across the sky towards sunset. After the Celtic Nations converted to Christianity in the early Middle Ages the Triskele was still used often as an ornamental item in Celtic-Christian art.
