Irish Celtic symbols are very popular. All the symbols stand for something unique, and people often gift them or things having these symbols on them, to their loved ones. This article provides a list of some Irish Celtic symbols, along with the meanings associated with them.
The triquetra has been found on runestones in Northern Europe and on early Germanic coins. It presumably had pagan religious meaning and it bears a resemblance to the Valknut, a symbol associated with Odin. The triquetra is often found in Insular art, most notably metal work and in illuminated manuscripts like the Book of Kells. It is also found in similar artwork on Celtic crosses and slabs from the early Christian period.
