The floral tendril is a popular decoration in the celtic art of the early Iron Age. The three spiral arms of the triskell (or triskele, triskelion) are displayed in countless variants through the celtic world. Paul Jakobsthal, jewish immigrant during the Third Reich in World War II, published a famous collection of celtic decoration styles in 1944, the core literature "Early Celtic Art".
The Triskelion with three conjoined spirals is an ancient symbol, the first appearance is verified in the Bronze Age. A great portal stone of the megalithic passage tomb of Newgrange in Ireland is decorated with stone carvings, depicting various spiral motifs, dating between 3300 and 2500 BC. The meaning of the three rotating arms could here be seen in a circle of life, consisting of birth, life and death.

The number three is popular in celtic art and jewellery, but it also plays an important role in mythology. There are statues with three faces, depicting unknown gods. The belief of the magical power of the number three is still alive today, for example in the christian trinity of godfather, son and holy ghost. Rural superstitions often refer to the magical number: To stay healthy during the year, it is recommended to eat three spring flowers. To find mushrooms in the forest, the first three finds should be offered to the forest ghosts. One should spit three times on the earth to be lucky and successful (toi, toi toi!). It brings luck to sneeze 3 times with empty stomach or when a spider runs three times over your hand.
Probably the symbol is thought to protect it´s owner, to bring him victory and invulnerabilty, as the incravings on celtic sword scabbards suggest. Even after the roman conquest the old symbols were still in use. It shows, how the Roman Empire integrated the celtic population by accepting their cultural and religious identity. Today, the triskelion is a symbol for ancient traditions, it is used in the flags of the Ile of Man, Sicily or by the Bretons to show their historical independence from the French central government.
