Trinacria (triarca, trincaria)

The Trinacria ( “Trincaria” means triangular), a three legged design resembling a triskele, is a symbol of the Isle of Sicily.” The three points represent the three capes of Sicily, also known as Trinacria in ancient times.

The gorgon in the center implies the protection of the Goddess Athena, the Patron Goddess of the Isle. (In early mythology, Medusa was the destructive aspect of Athena, and later, a monster slain by the hero Perseus, who adorned Athena’s shield.)

This symbol is ancient and is present in all mythologies of the globe. Even in ancient indian cults, Mayan and other you find it. The symbol refers to one of the most important objects in the occult teaching. Those who are initiated to the okkult luciferian teaching, who know how to read the Holly scriptures and the sense of the mythologies know what this symbol means. The whole Bible and all other cult scriptures worldwide are based on this symbol.

What is the exact definition behind that symbol, Samael?

By stating that the whole bible being based on this symbol, are suggesting that it represents “Body, Soul, and Spirit”?

Thanks in advance for your response.

Normans, arrived to Sicily in 1072, “exported” the Trinacria in the Isle of Man, that chose her as a symbol in replacement of that precedent, a vessel, of scandinavian origin.

This symbol, (without the gorgon’s head), also appears on the Manx flag. Is there some connection between Sicily and the Isle of Man? I can’t imagine what it might be.

That would seem to be the case…the flag’s emblem is the Manx coat of arms, which is mentioned in the seventeenth century as derived from the Sicilian emblem. In any case, there doesn’t appear to be a *solid* link.
