Meaning of Design
Celtic Crosses: Throughout Ireland & Scotland, the celts crafted these magnificent symbols in stone. Celtic Crosses pre-date Christianity and were first used by pagans to worship the sun. In pagan times the circle of the celtic cross represented the sun, being the center of their lives. It was not untill the 4th century AD when it was introduced by the first Christian Roman Emperor Constantine, that the Celtic Cross was used to represent Christ's victory. During the great conversion of many pagans to christianity, Christian Philosophers adapted the Celtic Cross and thought the meaning of the circle to represent Christ, the center of Christianity.
Celtic Knot: The Celtic Knot is the most well known Celtic design, It represents eternity and continuity. In Christianity it is used to represent the Holy Trinity: Father , Son and Holy Spirit. It is thought to show the continuous energy flow from life and death. The never ending knot work can symbolize the love and never ending commitment given in the sacred blessings of the marriage vows. The three knots can represent the past, present and future of the relationship.
