I am searching for a mother/daughter or motherhood celtic symbol. Can you give me advise? I’ve seen some knots, but I want to be 100% sure. Thank you.

Hi there, I’m looking for the father/daughter bond of the Celtic knots. Ivebeen researching a lot and only find a few (non scholarly) reads in Brigid who sat with her dying father and weaved this supposed Celtic knot. Does this exist? What is it called so I can look it up appropriately


Jennifer October 28, 2015 at 4:56 pm

Hi Julie. As an authentic legend, it does not. You can read more here: http://symboldictionary.net/?page_id=3559#celtic

can anyone identify the symbol on the cover of Laurence ginnell’s “the Brehon laws; a legal handbook

Thank you

It looks like a fanciful interlace of a triskele & an infinity symbol to me.


Frank September 29, 2015 at 3:13 pm

I see where you are coming from. I take it it is not a “symbol” in its own right, nor has any relationship to Irish law?

I would like to inquire on exactly where the information is being acquired for this site.


Jennifer August 19, 2015 at 1:34 am

That’s a pretty broad question. The short answer is, from twenty+ years of personal research and a fairly extensive library of source texts & books by subject matter experts :) .


Chantal July 31, 2015 at 5:12 pm

I’m searching for a symbol for daughter, is there one? I find mother/daughter and father/daughter. Is there one that solely stands for daughter?


Jennifer August 7, 2015 at 1:46 pm

I’m sorry, there are no genuine Celtic-era symbols that stand for familial relationships.


Benjamin July 1, 2015 at 11:35 am

Hi..looking for symbol or symbols for protector..warrior.. Seeing or prediction of future, Strong, powerful. Also powerful present personality and hard to read.. Plz help me with symbols associateing the above..


Elizabeth June 7, 2015 at 8:10 pm

On the Trinity knot with the ring, Does it matter which way the points face?
I have noticed that in pictures that it shows it with a point at 12 oclock position
and at the 4 and 8 o cloc poition.
I would like to draw one with the opposite at the 10 and 2 and then the 6 oclock position but do not want to offend anyone if that is not acceptable.
Please if you could give me some feedback, I would really appreciate it!


Jennifer June 8, 2015 at 8:51 pm

No, it would not.
