It's a kind of symbol or design, having three parts and generally regarded as being celtic in origin.

See http://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trisquel

Hi Everybody.

Triskel, tetraskels, swastikas, are all universal simbols, in many ancient cultures.

Triskel, for example, represents trinity, ternary configuration of god, (Father, Mother and Son) finded in all cultures and religions.

Hi Gregor,

You can find Triskel, as a symbol in the flags of Sicilia and Man Island, from celtic and greek cultures, and so long into lost antique cultures in Europe.
