What does the triskelion represent to me? To me, the three outward spirals represent the triple staged process of Samsara (life, death, rebirth). Where these three parts come together in the center denotes breaking free of this and gaining Nirvana (ultimate enlightenment).
This universal motif can be found on the flags of numerous nations. It also has been found on a lot of ancient artwork and architecture as well. There are many other numerous symbols to compare this to. For example look at the three hares, triquetra, valknut, taegeuk, snoldelev (interlaced horns), gankyl.
The locations and historical values found with this particular trinitarian image are far too numerous to namer or list. if anyone here can offer some extra input of insight? I’d really love to get another brother’s perspective on this beautiful mystical symbol.
