Triskele (triskelion, triquetrum, triquetra) is a figure formed of three radiated legs running. The figure arrived to northern Europe most probably in the late Bronze Age already, when it was apparently attributed with the power to keep off the evil. At Viking times triskelion was associated with Odin, the chief god in ancient Scandinavian mythology. There are also data indicating that triskelion was also the symbol of sun, moon, and movement in general. In Estonia triskele occurs in ceiling-pieces of Karja Church and on brooches, where it symbolizes Christian Trinity.
