This widely recognized knot has been used for centuries as a sign of special things and persons that are threefold: The Triple Goddess; Past, Present and Future; Body, Mind and Spirit; Land, Sea and Sky; The Holy Trinity.

The triquetra is often found in Irish Insular art, most notably in metal work and illuminated manuscripts like the Book of Kells. Today, the triquetra is often used artistically as a design element in Celtic knotwork. Many who identify as Modern Celts may use the symbol to display an identification with Celtic culture.
