The armoured triskelion on the flag of the Isle of Man


A triskelion or triskele (both from the Greek τρισκέλιον or τρισκελής, for "three-legged") is a symbol consisting of three interlocked spirals, or three bent human legs, or any similar symbol with three protrusions and a threefold rotational symmetry.

A triskelion is the symbol of Brittany, as well as the Isle of Man and Sicily (where it is called trinacria[1]). The Manx and Sicilian triskelions feature three running legs, bent at the knee and conjoined at the crotch area.

Origins

The triskelion symbol appears in many early cultures, including on Mycenaean vessels, on coinage in Lycia, and on staters of Pamphylia (at Aspendos, 370–333 BC) and Pisidia. It appears as a heraldic emblem on warriors' shields depicted on Greek pottery.[2] A symbol of four conjoined legs, a tetraskelion, is also known in Anatolia. Celtic influences in Anatolia, epitomized by the Gauls who invaded and settled Galatia, are especially noted by those who theorize a Celtic origin for the triskelion.

Manx triskelion

In the symbol for the Isle of Man, which is located in the Irish Sea, the "three legs embowed" of the heraldic triskelion are represented in armour, "spurred and garnished or (gold)."

On Manx banknotes, the triskelion appears within a rim containing the Latin inscription QUOCUNQUE JECERIS STABIT ("Wherever you throw it, it stands"). The Manx triskelion is documented since the thirteenth or fourteenth century at the latest, and is alternatively known in the Manx language as the tre cassyn ("three legs"). The symbol appears on the Isle of Man's ancient Sword of State, which may have belonged to Olaf Godredson, who became King of the Sudreys (Southern Hebrides and the Isle of Man) in 1226.

Sicilian triskelion

The flag of Sicily, featuring the triskelion symbol revived by Joachim Murat

Familiar as an ancient symbol of Sicily, the triskelion is also featured on Greek coins of Syracuse, such as coins of Agathocles (317-289 BCE). In Sicily, the first inhabitants mentioned in history are the tribes of the Sicani (Greek Sikanoi) and the Sicels (Greek Sikeloi), who gave Sicily its more familiar modern name. The triskelion was revived, as a neoclassic—and non-Bourbon—emblem for the new Napoleonic Kingdom of the Two Sicilies, by Joachim Murat in 1808.

The symbol dates back to when Sicily was part of Magna Graecia, the colonial extension of Greece beyond the Aegean.[3] Pliny the Elder attributes the origin of the triskelion of Sicily to the triangular form of the island, the ancient Trinacria, which consists of three large capes equidistant from each other, pointing in their respective directions, the names of which were Pelorus, Pachynus, and Lilybæum.

The three legs of the triskelion are also reminiscent of Hephaestus's three-legged tables that ran by themselves, as mentioned in Iliad xviii:

    "At the moment Hephaestus was busily
    Turning from bellows to bellows, sweating with toil
    As he laboured to finish a score of three-legged tables
    To stand around the sides of his firm-founded hall. On each
    Of the legs he had put a gold wheel, that those magic tables
    Might cause all to marvel by going with no other help
    To the gathering of gods and by likewise returning to his house."

Levorotatory po ang Manx at Sicilian Triskelion.
ginamit nila itong simbolo dahil ito'y angkop sa kanilang rehiyon at kultura.
Dextrorotatory naman sa Tau Gamma Phi.
clock-wise po ang direksyon ng Triskelion Seal at meron itong mga kahulugan.

blackapple, kung naintindihan mo ang unang artikulo tungkol sa usapin,
ay hindi mo na itatanong kung sinong naunang gumamit ng simbulong Triskelion.
ipaalala ko sa iyo sabi nga 333 B.C. ay meron na daw nito.
