These knots are interlaced patterns like spirals, steps, keys, plait work, and braiding patterns displaying rich, colorful and intricate symbols. An intrinsic component of Celtic art and culture, this art form is based on seven dominant creations: man, mammal, plant, insect, bird, fish, and reptile. All these creations were used to highlight certain derivations. The Celtic simple knot alone has several meanings. Some believe they were designed to defeat the forces of evil, the more interlaced knots were perceived to be more powerful in providing protection. Probably, the reason many earlier Irish flags carried a wide range of interlaced knots. Another belief attributed to the knots was the belief of never-ending life. That the cycle of life never ceases to exist and individual life is treated as a strand woven in the fabric of time and space. The interweaving of knots is associated with eternity and all that surrounds life; past, present and the future. Each loop is believed to be an individual who is interwoven into all dimensions of life.

Celtic Love Knot

As a knot is created by interweaving two individuals strands, the Celtic love knot represents love between two lovers. Celtic love knots are very similar in their meaning to the eternity knot or Celtic heart knots, although heart knots are a recent addition to the Celtic art form. This symbolism in this art form has not changed over the years. The triple drop love knot is made using three strands, each representing the powerful forces of nature, earth, water and fire, united with one continuous interwoven line, representing spirit, being, and strength in unity. The Celtic four love knot circles represent the four seasons and their interlocking represents the succession of these seasons. The double lines found running along its edges are associated with eternal love or friendship between two people. The serpent love knot seen in the Irish Book of Kells stands for eternal life. The Celtic square knot is made using a single line that runs continuously and is believed to be the mark of loyalty.

Celtic Trinity Knot

The Celtic trinity knot is made using a single strand that is inter-weaved onto itself to form the three-dimensional singular design. According to the Christians, the Celtic trinity knot symbolized their faith of god being one with the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. To the Pagans, the triangle symbolized harmony and co-existence of the mind, body and spirit. According to modern belief, the triangle stressed upon the unity among three elements in all aspects of life, like the past, present and the future; land, sea and sky; mind, body, and soul, or the Eve connection shared by grandmother, mother and daughter.


Dara Celtic Knot

This knot represents the root system of an oak tree. As Celts considered oak tree sacred, they used it as an inspiration to derive meaningful messages for their daily lives. For Celts, oaks represented leadership, strength, wisdom, power, destiny and endurance. The knot means that people must unite in tough times so that they can face the challenges easily. It also reminds the presence of divine inner strength that lends humans the stability during challenging times.
