The trinity knot is a simple and lovely design. The term Triquetra comes from Latin, and it means "three-cornered." In Ireland, it is sometimes used to signify affection, with each corner representing the three promises of a relationship such as to love, honour, and protect. There are also older various interpretations of what constitutes the three corners, which are (from Wikipedia):
For pagans, the Triquetra represents the threefold nature of the Goddess as virgin, mother and crone. It also symbolizes life, death, and rebirth and the three forces of nature: earth, air, and water. The inner three circles represent the female element and fertility.
For Christians, the Triquetra represents the Trinity: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit--three persons as one God. Its three equal arcs represent equality, its continuous line expresses eternity, and the interweaving represents indivisibility and unity.
