The Triskel and its History ...

The triskel is a Celtic symbol considered an important feature of Celtic art at the time of the Tene Triskel is used in Greek antiquity. From Agathocles of Syracuse, he appears on the coins in Sicily, a three-caped island, of which he becomes the symbol. The triskel has also been taken over and integrated into the architecture of many abbeys, convents and churches. The triskeles, which means "three legs," is a symbol representing three human legs, or three intersecting spirals, or any other symbol with three protuberances evoking cyclic group symmetry. His oldest representations have been found on the megalithic temples of Malta. In the years 1914, the triskell was rediscovered in Brittany.

In the 1970s, the revival of Celtic music and the success of artists like Alan Stivell helped to make This pattern is known in Brittany and throughout France Today, triskel is strongly associated with the Breton culture and the tourist promotion of this region.
