Google comes to mind every year and on Sundays it's dedicated to an animated event doodle on the Celtic Triskele, an ancient symbol of Irish culture. Derived from the Greek word Triskeles, which means "three legs", the Triskelion derives from the Neolithic period, but only reached in the Celtic culture until about 500 BC. Popularity.
The Triskelion – also known as the Triple Spiral – has three interlocking spirals positioned to move in constant motion, moving from the center to the outside. It is often believed that the effect of the three spirals of Triskelion reflects cycles, progress and revolution.
The ancient symbol is open to a variety of interpretations, but is typically associated with a trinity of themes. For some it stands for life, death and rebirth; Past, present and future; and mind, mind and body just to name a few.
Still others associate the spirits with the Holy Trinity – the Christian doctrine that describes the composition of God as Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
One of the most common interpretations that Google has focused on is that the spirals represent the three realms of the material world – earth, water, and sky.
Whatever your interpretation is, Happy St. Patrick's Day!
