The four designs are:
THE DARA CELTIC KNOT
The word 'Dara' comes from the Irish word 'Doire' meaning oak tree. It is believed the Celtic artistic origins of the Dara Celtic Knot symbolised the root system of the oak tree. The Celts viewed the oak tree as a symbol of power, strength, leadership, wisdom and endurance
The Celtic Cross, comprising of a regular cross with its intersection surrounded by a ring or circle is recognized the world over. Although now a common Celtic Christian symbol, the cross has pre-Christian origins. Legend has it that the cross may have been introduced to Ireland by Saint Patrick.
The Celtic symbol of the Triquetra interlaced with a circle is popularly known as the Trinity Knot. The circle is believed to convey longevity as it represents an in interrupted life cycle. It is commonly used in Celtic art and design and can be found in the Book of Kells.
The Celtic and pre-Celtic symbol of three interlocked spirals is known as a Triskele. Commonly used in Celtic and pre-Celtic art and carvings, the Triskele is famously carved on the entrance stone to Newgrange.
