Symbolism of the Celtic Dragon:
Celtic dragons are considered the most powerful of all Celtic symbols. In Celtic mythology dragons are used to symbolize power and wisdom among leaders. “The Path of the Dragon” was the Celtic term for ley lines. Ley lines are stretches of mystic power that criss-cross over the land. Dragons though deadly, and frighting represented the contribution of life and health. They were omens of good harvest, a year of plenty. The Druids were the ones who found the dragons and interpreted their meanings. The dragon represents the whole of creation, the Celts also represented the dragon with the elements. To the Celts the dragon was a creature of a parallel world and played an important roll in Celtic religion. Dragons were considered gatekeepers to other worlds and guardians of wealth. Dragons are also frequently found outside of churches to ward off evil.
Symbolism of the Celtic knot:
The Celtic knot symbol, is also referred to as the mystic knot, or the endless knot. This knot is a symbol of beginnings and endings. When viewing these beautiful knots, we cannot see the beginning or the end and reminded of the timeless nature our spirits. Celtic knots are endless paths to eternity and never endings this can be in love, faith, friendship, loyalty and so forth.A less spiritual representation also relates to the knots endless nature. Because of it’s never ending path the Celtic knot can represent an uninterrupted life cycle. Some may use this symbol as a charm of sorts when warding against sickness or setbacks that might interfere with an otherwise calm and stable life. These knots are often used as emblems, which can be found in jewelry, clothing, or home decor. In ancient times gifts adorned with mystic knots were given with wishes of longevity or luck with new endeavors.

The name Dara comes from the the word “dorie” which is the Irish word for “oak tree.” Oaks are considered sacred to the Celts, particularly the Druids who can translate the language of the trees into meaningful messages. The main symbolism of this knot is:
Symbolism of the Trinity Celtic knot:
To the ancient Celtic minds the Trinty knoty represents the lunar or solar phases moon. This conclusion is made as we see the Trinity in alongside other solar and lunar symbols. Validating this theory we know that the Celts honored the Great Mother, a lunar Goddess. The main symbolism of this knot is
- Spirit, Mind, Body
- Father, Son, Holy Ghost
- Mother, Father, Child
- Past, Present, Future
- Power, Intellect, Love
- Creator, Destroyer, Sustainer
- Thought, Feeling, Emotion
- Mother, Maiden, Crone
- Other world, Mortal world, Celestial world
The circle that is often around the Trinity symbolizes eternity and protection. Circles are often drawn around Celtic knots to symbolize spiritual unity with the Divine.
