The “Tree of Life” has many symbolic meanings, starting with the Celts who believed they came from trees. The mighty oak was the center of any Celtic village, and Druids performed their ceremonies in sacred groves of oak trees. The branches ascend towards the heavens and the roots ground the tree in the underworld. The trunk represents the balance and link between the earth and the two worlds. The trinity symbol is a Celtic design that represents air, land and water. In the predominantly Catholic world of the Irish, it symbolizes the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.
This is a very popular symbol at Celtic Attitudes, and has ecological and harmonious connotations. Our founder is an old earth lover from before it was popular, so this one, like all the others, comes from the heart.
