An ancient Celtic symbol, the triquetra, is deemed one of the oldest, dating back to as early as 500 BC when used to symbolize the triple goddess (maiden-mother-crone). Over the centuries, it has become the symbol for the Holy Trinity among Christians in Ireland. The symbol is often used to represent the three fundamental elements – air, water, earth, or the infinite cycle of life. It is also known as a rune of protection.
