Triquetra  (pronounced  TRI ‘ KWLTRA) comes from the Latin word tri (three) its original meaning was simply triangle. The Triquetra has been found on rune stones in Northern Europe and on early Germanic coins, it had pagan religious meanings and a resemblance to the 'valknut', a symbol associated with the Viking god Odin. The triquetra is often found in Celtic art, mostly on metalwork and in manuscripts like the Book of Kells, also on Celtic crosses and slabs from the early Christian period  mainly as a background or filler. This knot has been recognized as a singular symbol for the past two centuries as a sign for special things and persons that are threefold. The symbol has been used by Christians as a sign of the Trinity Farther, Son and Holy Spirit. Sometimes a circle is added to the design that goes through the three interconnected loops of the Triqueta. The circle emphasizes the unity of the three elements.
